I don't know how reliable this German site is, but they are teasing that Calvin Harris' new single is called "Giant" and it features Rag'n'Bone Man. The track is expected to be released on January 11.

From Radio VHR: (translated from German)
QUOTE
For the single "Giant" (which culminates with the chorus line 'I am the giant!'), Harris got the currently biggest singer in the studio: 1.96 meter-bay Rory Graham, better known as Rag'n'Bone Man. With the trademark up-tempo song, the two now expect to continue the airplay number one series in Germany, which began in 2018 with "One Kiss" and "Promises", also in the new year.

Interested! I've always liked his voice even though his own material can be very MOR - bit like Sam Smith in some ways. Song title does sound a bit clunky though especially as there seems to be no metaphor involved laugh.gif

Intrigued! One Kiss and Promises were legit standout tracks of 2018 so I hope the trend continues with this.

Sam Smith was surprisingly excellent on 'Promises', so who knows what this could bring?

Great to see a new Calvin song will arrive this early into the year. biggrin.gif

Not fond of Rag'n'Bone Man but Calvin can make anyone sound great so I trust this will be another top quality tune.

Will certainly interesting, Rag'n'Bone Man has managed two Top 100 hits as features in the last year so maybe this could be his Top 40 return!

An unusual collaboration. Will be interested to hear this but apart from I found you, I havenít liked anything from him since my way. No promises and one kiss were both utterly forgettable!

I struggle to see how those are forgettable and 'My Way' isn't.

My Way is easily one of his worst ever
for me, Calvin is very hit and miss, not just with the songs, but also with the people he works with
he has worked with people that I really like, Florence, Ellie, Frank Ocean, Rihanna, Dua Lipa
but then with people that are just wrong (John Newman, Example, Neyo, Sam Smith)

hope this is not a forced collaboration imposed by the label

But we've heard Sam on a dance song before, it's just that he's released a bunch of Stay With Me clones in the interim, so it wasn't that surprising that he could come back to the Latch quality. On the other hand, I don't think R&BM has touched a dance track afaik

Yeah this will be the first proper dance song heís featured on. Weíve had remixes of his own tracks but Iíve only found the D&B ones to work (Rudimental, Wilkinson) so will be interesting to hear what Cavin has done production wise.

He was on the Gorillaz track 'The Apprentice' which is quite dancey:
