Calvin Harris Releases New Album “Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2”: Streaming
- Scottish DJ Calvin Harris released his sixth studio album “Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2” on August 5, 2022.
The album is his first LP in five years, and is a sequel to his 2017 album “Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1”.
The album comprises 14-track, produced by Calvin Harris, featuring guest appearances from Snoop Dogg, Young Thug, Normani, Pharrell Williams, Dua Lipa, Busta Rhymes, Justin Timberlake, Chloe Bailey, 21 Savage, Latto, Charlie Puth, Tinashe, Swae Lee, Stefflon Don, Offset, 6lack, Pusha T, Donae'o, Halsey, Lil Durk, Shenseea, and Jorja Smith.
This time, he approached a dance and electronic beats to the album.
“With this one, I was like, 'I wanna have live drums and I wanna have guitar,'” Calvin Harris told Zane Lowe of Apple Music. “I want the layers and the grit and the dirt. And I don't want everything to be mixed perfectly. I want things to be like Sly & The Family Stone when it's just mixed on the fly and it's like, 'Oh, he's gonna do a solo now!' And you've got to turn him up and he's too loud. I just want to feel it in my chest—in a good way.”
He continued, “It gets me excited about making music. I can work with artists and they can express themselves in a way that they can't do on their own music—whether it be [because of] record label politics or what their fans expect of them. It's like, 'No pressure. I'll give you a platform to go and have a laugh. I can promise you it'll sound good. Might not be a hit, but you'll have a good time. And you might just end up on a tune with someone that you would never dream of.' If I can convey that, then usually people are up for it.”
