Last night Calvin Harris spontaneously released his best song in a year.
He reunites with Ellie Goulding on the brilliant new single Outside – a dance-pop track that marries Goulding’s angelic voice with the springy synths perfectly.
I’ll always give Calvin Harris the benefit of the doubt because he is the sole creator of the musical bible – We Found Love – but let’s be real here: Summer was just a fun festival song and Blame was a boring Summer. It might not be I Need Your Love-level but this new song is the best song he’s released all year.
Side note: Doesn’t Ellie sound like Sophie Ellis-Bextor?
Outside will feature on his new album Motion, which is due out November 3 (pre-order now).
