Calvin Harris has said there may be a possibility of working with Katy Perry in the future.

The pop star has been in touch with Harris – and even compared him to Phil Spector.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1's Newsbeat Harris said: "There are some murmurings about [working with] Katy Perry. But you can never tell with Americans whether it'll happen or not."

He continued saying: "She sent me a big long email comparing me to Phil Spector which I found incredible, but you've got to laugh haven't you? So that was great and we're possibly doing something."

Harris said the pair had discussed what kind of sound Perry might go for on her second album saying: "She [Katy Perry] wants to do like a fun album, like a dance album but obviously still pop. I kind of fit that bill so I guess that's why she thought of me. It'd be that kind of thing."

Harris added saying there were lots of other projects in the pipeline, but he wasn't sure how many would come to fruition as he'll be on tour.

"There are a bunch of people that I could be doing stuff with," he said. "To be honest probably half of it won't work out because I'm on the road for most of the year now."
