Calvin Harris: 'I've quit singing'

Calvin Harris
Calvin Harris has revealed that he will not sing on any of his future tracks.

The hit producer and DJ, who sang on his first two studio sets I Created Disco and Ready For The Weekend, said he will not sing on future albums because he is "not cut out for that role".

"I've stopped the live shows. I'm going to focus more on production and DJing and zero per cent of my time will go on singing," he told the Herald Sun.

"I'll do tracks with people who can sing well - proper artists, proper performers. I can focus on what I'm much better at, which is making music. I'm just not cut out for that role.

"I kind of fell into it a few years ago - the live show had to happen, I had to be the frontman because I was doing the vocals on the songs. It went all right. I spent a few years trying to get it really properly good, but it dawned on me it wasn't going to get much better. I've taken the singing thing as far as I can."

Harris also revealed that he plans to release songs intermittently, rather than putting out another full album.

He explained: "The priority is making good songs and getting them out there, not making anybody wait, especially me. The next thing will have a featured vocalist and it's dead exciting because these are proper artists. It's a new lease of life for the sort of music I make."
