Superstar producer Calvin Harris has officially announced his new album, his first since 2014. Earlier this year, Harris promised that his new album would feature collaborations “with the greatest artists of our generation,” and it now looks like he’s absolutely delivering on that promise.
Earlier today Harris took to social media to announce his new album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 through a video also featuring the unbelievably stacked list of featured guests. As well as Frank Ocean, Migos, Young Thug, Pharrell and Ariana Grande, with whom he’s already released new singles Slide and Heatstroke, guests include Travis Scott, Kehlani, Future, Pharrell, Katy Perry, Big Sean, John Legend, Khalid, ScHoolboy Q, D.R.A.M., Nicki Minaj, Lil Yachty, Jessie Reyez, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Snoop Dogg.

Whether you love him or hate him, there’s no denying that the album is littered with hip-hop heavyweights. Given the quality of his first two singles, it might actually be a pretty great album.
Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 will be out June 30, 2017. Truthfully, we’re more excited about a new Calvin Harris album than we ever expected to be.
