Calvin Harris snags Gwen Stefani and tons more for upcoming album
Calvin Harris is set to drop his new album, Motion, in just about a month and his list of LP features is looking like an absolute gold mine. On Sunday, Oct. 5, the Scottish DJ took to Twitter to reveal some of the features on his fourth studio album and they include names like Gwen Stefani, Big Sean and many more.
Ellie Goulding was the first name he revealed during his Twitter announcement, but that might not be too surprising, as he's been hanging around with the British songstress since his highly public split from Rita Ora. Harris continued to spill the string of collaborators, with tweet after tweet dropping acts like Ummet Ozcan, R3hab, Haim, Firebeatz, Hurts and All About She. R&B newcomer, Tinashe, will also expand her résumé into the EDM world with a track on the upcoming set.
Since teasing the collaborators, the 30-year-old DJ revealed the entire tracklist with song titles just a day later on Monday afternoon, Oct. 6. At time of press, the tweet had received over 1,200 retweets. Even though Harris uploaded a track called "C.U.B.A." to his SoundCloud earlier this summer, it looks like the tune did not make the final cut.
Since blazing the radio airwaves with his banger, "Summer," Harris has also released follow-up single, "Blame," featuring John Newman. While we have the dance tune on repeat, we still don't know if we can tell the difference between some of his production and that of fellow EDM DJ, Avicii.
