Suppose we’ve all known that Calvin Harris was up to something. If not solely on the weight of his two new singles “Heatstroke” and “Slide,” the former featuring Pharrell, Young Thug and Ariana Grande, the latter a rare appearance from Frank Ocean and Migos‘ Offset. Both are equally infectious joints, perfectly ripe for summertime consumption along some still or moving bodies of water, both share a distinctive call to the producer’s disco and funk beginnings.
But it appears the singles campaign was just the first step. Today, Harris has announced a new album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1, and it may just be the year’s most star-studded affair. Wrangling the likes of the aforementioned and just about anyone you can think of — Kehlani, Big Sean, Nicki Minaj, John Legend, Schoolboy Q, D.R.A.M., Katy Perry, PARTYNEXTDOOR and so many more.
A collaboration with Khalid and Future was teased in a trailer for the album, which you can see and hear below. The single is slated to arrive this Friday, while the actual album is set for a June 30th drop. Revisit Calvin Harris’ last two singles below along with the album announcement. More sounds soon come. Hold tight for his next transmission.
