Example Drops New Calvin Harris-Produced Song, “Some Nights Last For Days”

Example has long been one of the greatest crossover acts in EDM and hip hop, called upon for numerous collaborations and remixed more times than we can count. When he first teamed up with Calvin Harris for “We’ll Be Coming Back” in 2012 on 18 Months, it was a smash success. Now, the pair are back with a new track on Example’s new album, “Some Nights Last For Days.”

“Some Nights Last For Days” is the title track from Example’s seventh studio album released yesterday. The production from Harris feels reminiscent of the funky style he made for Funk Wav Bounces, and meshes perfectly with Example’s harmonized, meaningfully slow vocals.

You can listen to the full album here and check out “Some Nights Last For Days” below.

Calvin Harris Recalls The Time An ER Had To Restart His Heart In 2014

Calvin Harris has lots of stories to tell for being one of the world’s top DJs. Whether it’s flying back and forth from Ibiza to his residencies in Las Vegas or playing the world’s biggest festivals, there must be some story for every show he plays.

Back in 2014, Calvin had quite the interesting year medically. “Interesting year for me 2014, started with me knocking myself off number 1 in the UK and ended with my heart getting restarted in the ER,” he tweeted.

Interesting year for me 2014, started with me knocking myself off number 1 in the UK and ended with my heart getting restarted in the ER…this sort of stuff happened in between https://t.co/BS0JqXmyhY

— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) May 20, 2020

That November, Harris pulled out from performing at the MTV European Music Awards, tweeting that “heart problems” were to blame. He revealed later that year that he had been diagnosed with an arrhythmia, characterized by an irregular heartbeat.

Putting down the bottle helped him to get read of the issue, as he revealed four years later during a Twitter Q&A that he was now sober. “The last thing I want to do is down 2 bottles of Jack Daniels a night, live on Greggs pasties and sleep on an absolutely stinking bus all year, scream down a mic for 55 minutes and pretend to play a keyboard 5x a week those days are behind me son,” he wrote in 2018.

He continued that “things are a bit less fun” without drinking alcohol, but that getting sober resulted in his arrhythmia not returning “since 2014.”

We’ll cheers to that… with some O’Doul’s.

deadmau5 Reveals Forthcoming Collab with The Neptunes

Yesterday, The Neptunes cryptically announced their return on social media — and today deadmau5 confirms they have a forthcoming collaboration together.

Ready or not, “Pomegranate” is coming. Though we don’t have an official release date, we’ll settle with the track title and artwork for now.

The Neptunes never really left, however — Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo have remained active through the years, producing music and collaborating with practically every reputable artist under the sun. In recent years, their list of credits includes productions for Calvin Harris, Rae Sremmurd, Gesaffelstein, Solange and many, many more.

However, it’s been since 2003 when they dropped their debut album The Neptunes Present… Clones.

Check back to hear “Pomegranate” when it drops!

Calvin Harris Sued By Neighbor For Neglecting To Fix Dangerous Issues With His Bel-Air Home

Calvin Harris is being sued by a neighbor in Bel-Air, California for failing to fix issues with his home that are allegedly putting her and others in peril.

According to the suit obtained by TMZ, Harris’ Bel-Air home has a faulty pipeline that is steadily leaking sludgy water from his home and traveling downhill, coating a driveway and access road to her house. Apparently it’s so bad that car tires will even spin in the mess.

Harris has reportedly been cited twice by the city for the issue, but all he did was lay down some sandbags to block the flow — a stop gap, at best.

In addition to the faulty pipeline, the claim also states that Harris has major fissures in his retaining wall, putting her own property and safety at risk as he lives downhill from his home.

The claimant is suing for damages for mental and emotional distress, and loss of property values.

Calvin Harris’ Love Regenerator Alias Tapped To Headline Defected’s Online Virtual Festival

Love Regenerator, the new house and techno alias from Calvin Harris, will make its festival debut tomorrow during Defected’s third online virtual festival.

Of course, Calvin has already streamed a couple Love Regenerator sets on YouTube, but a festival debut, even an online one, is still noteworthy. He’ll be joined on the lineup by Defected residents Sam Divine, David Penn and Mambo Brothers, who will be doing a unique Ibiza sunset inspired set, delivering the Balearic vibe to people’s living rooms around the world. House legends Roger Sanchez and Mike Dunn join the line-up alongside South Africa’s inimitable Black Motion and masked house master Claptone. 

“Defected helped define the sound of house music I was listening to as a teenager; I associate the old grey and blue 12” covers with so much happiness and inspiration… Since day one every release has been of quality, and when you think about it – with the amount the industry has changed since 1999 – to be smashing it out the park more than ever is a beyond incredible feat!” – Calvin Harris

The first two Defected Virtual received over 5m views, and plenty of positive reactions from fans and media alike. Due to the overwhelming demand from its audience, Defected is committing to continuing the broadcasts for as long as possible, while again encouraging donations to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund with a button appearing alongside the stream.

You can watch the festival tomorrow, April 10, beginning at 6am PST/9am EST here.

Wild thoughts is battling for 1-st place with Despacito

Wild thoughts is battling for 1-st place with Despacito

Wild thoughts is battling for 1-st place with Despacito.
Despacito’s first place in tops seems to be outrunned by
Rihanna’s and Dj Khaled‘s song, Wild thoughts. After 9 weeks
in the first place, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee & Justin Bieber’s
song Despacito could be unseated by the end of this week.
On today’s chart update Rihanna’s Wild Thoughts seems to be
leading with only 1300 sales.

If this happens it means that Dj Khaled it’s gonna be
for the second time number 1 on the official singles chart.
The first song was his collaboration with Justin Bieber
at the song I’m the one. Bieber it’s like a cat, always lands
on his feet, always on the top or in the top :).
Meanwhile it seems that Calvin Harris steps up a place,
hiting a new peek, top 3, climbing up one place. Jonas Blue’s
song Mama is staying solid on 5.

Hard to love – Calvin Harris feat. Jessie Reyez lyrics

Lyrics Calvin Harris – Hard to love

I don’t like to talk
But I love to sing
And I don’t smoke
But I love to drink
I’m paranoid
I don’t miss a thing
But I’m still nice
At least that’s what I think
Fall in love
Like I’m a freak
But then I pull out, and say
“I need freedom, I need freedom”.(hard to love)

I guess I’ll take it, heartbreaker
A title, I can’t shake it, can’t fake it
I guess I’ll take it, heartbreaker
A title, I can’t shake it, can’t fake it.

Baby, I’d rather be hard to love
Than easy to leave, you should believe me
Haven’t you needed me?
I’d rather be hard to love
Than easy to leave, you should believe me
Haven’t you needed me?

‘Course you love me
You don’t know me
But I got news for you, I came broken
Ego issues, my head is swollen
I got a million chips on my shoulder
But if you stick this by all I shoulder
Maybe you don’t need freedom, freedom.

I guess I’ll take it, heartbreaker
A title, I can’t shake it, can’t fake it
I guess I’ll take it, heartbreaker
A title, I can’t shake it, can’t fake it.

Baby, I’d rather be hard to love
Than easy to leave, you should believe me
Haven’t you needed me?
I’d rather be hard to love
Than easy to leave, you should believe me
Haven’t you needed me?

Go deeper, go deep
I love it when your roots go deep so I know you won’t leave
Go deeper, go deep
I love it when your roots go deep so I know you won’t leave
Go deeper versuri-lyrics.info
I like being ugly, that way if they love me
I know that they love me for real
I like being ugly, that way if they love me
I know that they love me for real
I like being ugly, that way if they love me
I know that they love me for real (woah-oh-oh)
I like being ugly, that way if they love me
I know that they love me for real.

Go deeper
Go deeper.

Go deeper
Go deep
Oh my God, that feels nuts on its own
That s**t feels like fucking
That s**t feels like, that s**t feels like some ego tripping shittt.
Calvin Harris lyrics
