Hurts frontman Theo Hutchcraft has recorded a new track with Calvin Harris and Alesso.

Hotly-tipped Swedish DJ Alesso revealed that the trio had been working together in a tweet he posted on Friday (May 31), adding that the song is reportedly "sounding big".

The news was later confirmed by Calvin Harris who retweeted the initial post along with: "He's not lying". Theo Hutchcraft then tweeted:



Last month, Calvin Harris warned that his next batch of new material "probably won't get into the charts" due to a change of direction. He said: "I'm doing more dance music that probably won't get into the charts. I was in the studio yesterday. I just want to make good music; this award is like drawing a line under the past two years where I've just been intensely fucking working to try and make singles and hit records."

In December last year, the Scottish DJ and producer claimed that he found making pop music easier than "making a ham sandwich". Speaking about his creative process, he said: "It's incredibly easy to do, but hard to do perfectly. I'd struggle to make a perfect ham sandwich because I never make them, whereas pop music comes naturally to me - it's what I do every day."
