Hurts' Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson have spoken to NME about their collaborative track with Calvin Harris and Alesso - click at the top of the page to watch.

The trio revealed on Twitter that they had teamed up to record a song together last month (June 2), with hotly-tipped Swedish DJ Alesso promising that the track was "sounding big". Speaking about the collaboration, Hutchcraft revealed: "It's almost done. We've known Calvin for a very long time - for about six years, or something like that - and we've had the same management. We've been really good friends with him for a long time. It's something we've talked about a lot, but then the opportunity came up, and it's exciting. He makes electronic pop music and so do we. It was a good fun process."

Asked what the album would sound like, meanwhile, he added: "We tried to make it as representative of the three of us - us, Alesso and Calvin - as much as we could. That was what made it a good process. There was no pushing or pulling really. I'm looking forward to people hearing it."

Earlier this month, Hurts spoke to NME about being asked to write a song for the Eurovision Song Contest. The band released their debut album 'Happiness' in 2010 before putting out the follow-up, 'Exile', in March of this year. Calvin Harris, meanwhile, recently revealed that his next batch of new material "probably won't get into the charts" due to a change of direction. The Scottish DJ previously claimed that he found making pop music easier than "making a ham sandwich".
