Calvin Harris to host new album listening parties in black cabs

'Motion' will be heard in taxis in London, Glasgow and Manchester

Calvin Harris will give fans the chance to hear his new album in the back of black cabs around the UK this weekend.

As the Manchester Evening Post report, the DJ – who was recently named the first British artist to surpass one billion Spotify plays – will host listening parties in black cabs in London, Manchester and Glasgow.

Harris’ new album ‘Motion’ will be released on Monday (November 3), but first Harris will give fans a free ride and a free listen to the record on Friday and Saturday night (October 31 and November 1).

The promo campaign comes after the release of recent singles ‘Under Control’, ‘Summer’ and ‘Blame’. It’s also been revealed that Haim and Gwen Stefani will feature on the upcoming LP. Hear the Haim-starring ‘Pray To God’ now.

‘Motion’ is the follow-up to the Scottish DJ’s 2012 album ’18 Months’. He has also teamed up with Theo Hutchcraft of Hurts and Ellie Goulding on two songs, having worked with both vocalists in the past.

Earlier this year Harris was confirmed as the highest earning DJ in the world for a second successive year having earned £39.8m in the past twelve months.
