Calvin Harris follows up his first album, 'I Created Disco' with 'Ready For The Weekend' which is due out in mid-August. "What I'm into at the moment", says Calvin Harris, "is the idea of stadium dance. Playing football stadiums with massive riffs, big hands-in-the-air moments."
The current single 'I'm Not Alone' Calvin calls "a big stadium dance tune, somewhere between Snow Patrol, Faithless and Grandaddy".
The next single from the forthcoming album will be the title track, 'Ready For The Weekend' which, features the vocals of Mary Pearce (who's credits include backing vocals for the likes of Beverly Knight, Lionel Richie and Chaka Khan), as well as big piano chords.
On the album as a whole, Calvin says: "Ready For The Weekend is a good example of pop song meets piano house record, it's my favourite thing I've done so far."
'Ready For The Weekend' is the second album from Scottish dance producer Calvin Harris who shot to fame with his 2007 debut album 'I Created Disco'. After working as producer for Kylie Minogue and being nominated for various awards including a Brit for best single, this is another collection of pop inspired dance tracks taking in everything from electro house to the anthemic pop trance of the lead single 'I'm Not Alone'.
Scottish kitsch-dance producer, Calvin Harris, burst on to the UK music scene with his tongue-in-cheek single, "Acceptable In The 80s", which reached number 10 in the UK singles chart. A blend of retro synth sounds, and knowing lyrics it set the template for Harris' debut full length, I CREATED DISCO, released in June 2007. The album was preceded by Harris' second single, "The Girls", which upping the ante with it's ironic claims of sexual attractiveness--set to a synth sample from the Human League--the single shot top number 3 in the single charts.
