Calvin Harris Says Third Album Coming Soon
Dance producer reveals he's been playing with vintage synths...
Calvin Harris has let slip some details about his forthcoming third album, claiming that it is sounding "quite epic".
The Scots dance-pop producer, who has worked with Rihanna, Kylie Minogue and Dizzee Rascal among others, also revealed that he is using vintage synthesisers in a bid to find a new sound.
He told Music Radar: "We're looking at a release date soon. It's been a pretty busy year - touring, producing for other people, remixing - so I've not been able to spend as much time in the studio as I'd have liked.
"I think the main thing I've tried to do with this album is not cover the same old ground. It's still sounding quite epic, but that whole 'I'm Not Alone' thing has been done to death.
"Loads of people have jumped on that sound. I want to do something different. I want to challenge myself and feel in danger of messing up. Sometimes, you need to do that to get the best out of yourself."
And the musos among you may be interested to know that he's been using a Roland Juno-106 and a Korg MS20 on his new material.
