We're 5 albums in now and Calvin is making preparations to launch his 6th studio album on us hopefully this year, but I ask are there any songs that you still regularly go back to from previous albums and you wish had been actual singles?

Slow Acid (from Motion)

They even went as far as giving this song a video in 2014 and it was a very different direction production wise, one of his best album tracks for me!

Colours (from I Created Disco)

It got a digital and vinyl release in late 2007 and all the signs pointed towards an actual single push with promos being sent out and remixes commissioned, but it never materialised, which is a shame as I feel it would've finished the debut album campaign nicely.

Here 2 China (from 18 Months)

It's understandable we didn't get anymore singles from 18 Months considering its longevity and it giving Calvin 9 chart smashes, but Here 2 China is such a dirty bop I love how he and Dillon Francis worked together and brought Dizzee in too heart.gif Maybe Let's Go or Thinking About You could've been scrapped in favour of this?

This is the Industry (from I Created Disco)

This has a great guitar riff supporting its electronic production and would've been my choice as either single #4 or replacing Merrymaking altogether despite my love for it.

It technically was a single but from Funk Wav Bounces they should've given 'Rollin' a proper push (in place of 'Heatstroke' or following 'Feels' in place of 'Faking It').

Never heard it before, but that 'Slow Acid' track sounds very good, yes it should have been an official single I think.

Green Valley tongue.gif

In all seriousness I would have loved Iron or Burnin' to have been released as proper singles.

Green Valley is great but merely serves as an intro to Bounce really. More intros/interludes to be released as singles pls x

As much as I would have liked This is the Industry and Vegas to have been singles, I think Disco Heat would have stood the best chance from I Created Disco.
