Calvin Harris Does It ‘My Way’ on His New Breakup Anthem
Nothing—and nobody—is standing in Calvin Harris' way.
The Scottish producer-songwriter debuted the lyric video for his latest track, "My Way," on Thursday, September 15, where he refers to a "two-faced" person who was once standing in his way... but isn't any longer.
"Lie awake two-faced, but in my heart I understand / I made my move, but it was all about you / Now I feel so far removed / You were the one thing in my way," Harris sings on the surfy dance-pop track and follow up to his summer smash, "This Is What You Came For," making a rare return as a vocalist since 2014's "Summer" and 2011's "Feel So Close."
Though has primarily collaborated with other singers on recent hits, working with artists like Rihanna, Ellie Goulding and Florence Welch, Harris' first two albums, I Created Disco and Ready For the Weekend, featured his own vocals.
Speaking to iHeartRadio, the DJ explained that he chose to sing on "My Way" because "the time [was] right" and he likes "to sing on a song every two or three years or so."
"I just kind of thought it was a bit of a curve ball," he added. "I kind of like the idea of just tracking something out without a celebrity guest feature, and I think the vocal works, so why not."
While the lyrics are cryptic enough, many fans have noted the connection between the track and his high-profile June split from pop star Taylor Swift, who he dated for 15 months. Could "My Way" be his reaction to their breakup in EDM form?
"[The] song's kind of about breaking out of a situation that you thought was a good thing," Harris explained to iHeartRadio. "Then you're way more comfortable out of it. And it could be anything. It could be a job or it could be a relationship...I kind of had the idea for the concept for a few years, but I didn't know how to work out how it sounded."
