He’s had mammoth hit after mammoth hit, but Scottish DJ sensation, Calvin Harris has warned that his new material “probably won’t get into the charts”.
Harris, who’s album, ‘18 Months‘ has eight Top 10 singles, including ‘We Found Love‘ featuring Rihanna and ‘Sweet Nothing‘, his collaboration with Florence Welch, just to name a few, has led the DJ to be crowned the Songwriter Of The Year at this year’s Ivor Novellos awards.
However, following the victory, Harris told Music Week, that his new dance stuff wouldn’t make it to charts.
“I’m doing more dance music that probably won’t get into the charts. I was in the studio yesterday,” said Harris.
“I just want to make good music; this award is like drawing a line under the past two years where I’ve just been intensely fucking working to try and make singles and hit records.”
This comes after Harris claimed making pop music was actually easier than ‘making a ham sandwich’, citing that the process of making the music was quite simplistic.
“It’s incredibly easy to do, but hard to do perfectly. I’d struggle to make a perfect ham sandwich because I never make them, whereas pop music comes naturally to me – it’s what I do every day” said Harris.
‘18 Months‘ is the DJ’s third studio album following, Ready For the Weekend, and I Created Disco.
The album features the hits, ‘I Need Your Love’ with Ellie Goulding, ‘Drinking From The Bottle’ with Tinie Tempah, ‘We’ll Be Coming Back’ with Example, ‘Let’s Go’ with Neyo, ‘Bounce’ with Kelis, and the original Harris hit, ‘Feel So Close’
