Will Calvin Harris Release 10 New Songs This Year?

Calvin Harris has confirmed he’ll be debuting new songs this year -- and it seems like he already knows exactly how many. He recently engaged with fans in a Twitter Q&A, where one of them asked, “Any new upcoming tracks this year?” The DJ-producer replied simply, “10.” It’s unclear if he’ll be releasing them all at once in an album, or if he’ll be dropping 10 individual singles. Incidentally, 2017 marks 10 years since Calvin released his first album, I Created Disco. Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
