Summer might feel complete with a new album! Since the release of Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1 in 2017, we’ve been waiting for Calvin Harris to set the vibe right again. Fortunately, the producer/DJ is ready to give us the full feast with his upcoming album Funk Wav Bounces Vol.2! It’s definitely time to see that Calvin Harris is the summer wave with his new single ‘New To You’.
Calvin’s In His R&B Bag!
When Vol.1 dropped, we didn’t know Harris had R&B/funk strong in his bones! Bops like ‘Heatstroke’ & ‘Rollin’ surprised us with a smoothness not heard in his EDM work. Channeling the balance between soulfulness and infectiousness of The Neptunes and Michael Jackson, Calvin seems entrenched firmly in the r&b lane. After an early taste with the standalone single ‘Over Now,’ he’s not playing around as he preps for his next project.
Following the four-on-the-floor energy of previous singles like ‘Potion’ and ‘Stay With Me,’ Harris slows it down in this new track. In a midtempo disco groove accented with strings, this is perfect for slow dances when a party winds down. Normani and Tinashe approach the beat like sirens with sultry vocals, while Offset adds some punch with a quick verse. Accordingly, this trio sets this track as a chill counterpart to Harris’s essential banger ‘Slide.’
Summer Just Hits Different With Calvin Harris
As Vol.2 approaches on 8/5, ‘New To You’ is the final teaser before Calvin hits us with more heaters on the whole album! Pre-order the album & keep it on deck for some late summer functions!
