Longtime Bloc Party fan and house-party guru Calvin Harris is releasing his second studio album sometime this year. The first single from the Scotsman’s still-untitled effort is “I’m Not Alone.” The late-night dance track premiered this past Friday on Peter Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show. You can hear how it sounds on Monday morning via Calvin’s MySpace, though you should read his warning first:
Pete Tong had the first play of I’m Not Alone on friday, that’s my new single, it’s on my music player now.
In an attempt to delay piracy i have given it an “I’m Your Nan” remix, so i hope you enjoy that.
Obviously I hope you like it, it’s had some interesting reactions so far – a lot of them good, some of them bad!
For those hating, please be aware that what i’m trying to do is make memorable music, and given that i have already made songs that sound like Acceptable in the 80s and The Girls, and indeed ‘Dance Wiv Me’ it’s time to move on and keep it interesting, which involves taking risks, one of those risks being that perhaps nobody will like it…!
But i would much rather that be the case than i make some cut up distorted blog house tune, i think there is enough of that around at the moment.
So give it a chance won’t you?
