Calvin Harris is gearing up for the release of his first track of 2021. Titled "By Your Side," the single finds him teaming up with British singer-songwriter Tom Grennan for a bright, sun-kissed dance anthem.
Check out an official preview of the upcoming single below, wherein rotating sunflowers overlap in kaleidoscopic fashion to form a visualizer.
It's easy to notice that this is a distinct departure from the rave-ready, acid house-inspired sound of Harris' Love Regenerator side project. Without reading too much into the preview, it seems that Harris could be returning to the electronic-pop sound that helped him break through in the 2010s.
