LISTEN: Calvin Harris takes his sound in a new direction with Frank Ocean on ‘Slide’

Rory Cashin

He knows how to produce a CHEWN, doesn’t he?

Calvin Harris has had an interesting time of it lately with his personal life, but you wouldn’t know it from the music he’s been putting out.

Following on from ‘How Deep Is Your Love’, ‘This Is What You Came For’, ‘Hype’ and ‘My Way’, we’re now up single number five from Harris’ as-yet-untitled fifth album.

In the build up to the release of the new single, he’s been very vocal about the kind of music he’s interested in creating for the world right now.

He dropped the single this morning on all platforms, and it sees him teaming up with two very hot properties, Frank Ocean and hip-hop trio Migos.

It does sound very different to the “build-up, build-up, build-up, chorus explodes all over the place” formula we’ve come to expect from his usual EDM output, and it’ll be interesting to see if this a direction he continues in going forward.
