Calvin Harris has allegedly quit making albums. No more of those classic Calvin Harris albums.
Speaking to The Sun, a ‘music source’ explained the logic behind the Scottish producer’s heartbreaking decision: “Calvin has always been a forward-thinker and believes just releasing singles is the way forward. Albums don’t sell how they used to and artists are now seeing streaming as the future. Albums are time-consuming and limit artists to cycles rather than having a persistent presence in the charts. Calvin is one of the most-streamed artists in the world so it would make sense to exploit that success.”
Success is, of course, a thing the boy from Dumfries knows a bit about. He wrote a banger with Rihanna (’We Found Love’), dated Taylor Swift and won a Grammy, and transformed himself from fuzzy goofball to hench model in just a few years. Now he lives in LA and performs regularly in Las Vegas. Life, it seems, has been kind to Calvin Harris.
Yet life has been unkind to those staunch Calvin Harris fans who fear for the future. Presumably he’ll keep releasing singles, but what about all those album tracks we love. You know, like, er… Like, erm… Actually, come to think of it, we can’t think of a single Calvin Harris album track.
