Calvin Harris Confirms His New Album Will Feature Katy Perry, Ariana Grande and More

Get ready for what we expect will be the sound of the summer, because Calvin Harris has dropped his album release date and a whole host of big-name collaborations.

Announcing it on Twitter, Calvin shared a little taste of his new music, along with: "ALBUM COMING JUNE 30."

Just in time for the summer, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 will include collabs with Frank Ocean, Pharrell, Katy Perry, Ariana Grande & Snoop.

Also on the line-up are Travis Scott, Future, Big Sean, John Legend, Nicki Minaj and PARTYNEXTDOOR, so we reckon there are a lot of potential number one tracks in the mix.

Which is good news for Calvin, especially considering those mixed feelings he has about Ed Sheeran's seemingly never-ending chart domination.

After Ed broke Calvin's previous record of scoring nine top 10 singles from one album, the producer took to Twitter to congratulate Ed – and tell him off for it, too lol.

"Ed Sheeran just beat my UK record top 10s from 1 album in ONE WEEK," he wrote. "Congrats Ed but also f**k you I love you but also f**k you."

Ed's latest record-breaking album ÷ shifted 672,000 copies in a week, making it the fastest-selling album by a male solo artist ever and the third fastest-selling overall in the first week.

Could you imagine what the charts would look like if Ed and Calvin collaborated? Get on it, boys – you'd probably make history or something.
