The Internet was ablaze this apocalyptic morning as more and more viewers pressed play on the new and very NSFW video for Calvin Harris’ sixth 18 Months single, ”Drinking From the Bottle.” The plot centers around, you guessed it, The Devil, who interacts with a number of individuals (including Harris and Tinie Tempah) throughout what ends up turning into a monologue inclusive, 5 minute and 34 second short film.
Ever wanted to hear all your favorite past, present, and future radio hits all in one place? Enter Calvin Harris’ 18 Months LP. This album is essentially mega-hit after mega-hit, separating tracks like “We Found Love,” “Let’s Go,” and “Feel So Close” with interludes like “Green Valley,” “Mansion” and “School.” To make sure things don’t get too pop though, Calvin carefully spreads out his “Iron” collab with Nicky Romero, “Awooga” and the new “Drinking From The Bottle” with Tinie Tempah among the “Sweet Nothing’s” and “I Need Your Love’s” for what turns out to be a great mix of styles.
Between the thoroughly rinsed melodies like “Bounce” and new found bangers like “Thinking About You” there is a lot to take in on 18 Months. At least 10 of the 15 are songs that either have or certainly will be blasting through your radio this Fall/Winter, and while that may throw a few hipsters for a loop, the album is actually quite amazing for what it is. Stream it below or on Calvin’s website, and find 18 Months out on October 29th/30th.
Of the music still unheard off Calvin Harris’ 18 Months album, “Here 2 China” with Dillon Francis and Dizzee Rascal has to be one of the most anticipated offerings. The grimy hip hop banger is a refreshing change of pace from the mostly dance-focused album, so catch a preview below and hear snippets of the entire album (out October 29th) after the jump.
If you weren’t already excited for Calvin Harris’ third studio LP, you should have plenty of reason to be now.
