The 'Bounce' DJ speaks about moving away from writing hit singles following his Ivor Novello Award win.

Calvin Harris has been teasing details for his next album and said the songs he is currently working on "probably won't get into the charts".

The Scottish star enjoyed huge success with recent album '18 Months' – making a host of Vodafone Big Top 40 number one singles and top tens.

'We Found Love', 'We'll Be Coming Back' and 'Sweet Nothing' were just some of the songs to have a huge impact from the record.

However speaking to Music Week, Calvin said he was focusing on more dance heavy tunes.

"I'm doing more dance music that probably won't get into the charts," he confessed. "I was in the studio yesterday. I just want to make good music; this award is like drawing a line under the past two years where I've just been intensely f***** working to try and make singles and hit records."
