Last month, Calvin Harris teased that Funk Wav Bounces will have a second iteration. Well, he recently took social media by storm by announcing that Funk Wav Bounces Vol.2 will be coming out this summer. The world-renowned DJ and producer will finally come back to a sound we all thought he put behind him. As some of you may recall, Calvin Harris tweeted that he was moving on from that sound, but that post has since been deleted. Today, we can all celebrate that it did not turn out to be true.
Funk Wav Bounces Vol.2 will be the sixth studio album of Calvin Harris. However, it will be his first in five years – his last one being the first volume of Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1, which arrived in 2017. The album, which featured collaborators including Frank Ocean, Migos, Young Thug, Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and spent 42 weeks on the chart.
Since Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1, Calvin Harris did not release many songs under his name. Last year, he released ‘By Your Side’, with Tom Grennan. In 2020, he started a new house project, called Love Regenerator. Harris also produced ‘I Heard You’re Married‘ from The Weeknd’s latest album, Dawn FM.
It’s gonna be a busy year for Calvin Harris, as he is set to play a large stadium show in Glasgow in July as well as slots at EXIT Festival, Sziget, Creamfields South, and Beslonic in addition to the release of Funk Wav Bounces Vol.2. Fellow artists and fans can’t wait to see what’s next for the British superstar.
