Example Says Calvin Harris' New Album '18 Months' Is Like A Greatest Hits Collection
The 'Changed The Way You Kiss Me' star speaks to Capital about the Scottish DJ's upcoming record.
Example has confessed that he thinks Calvin Harris' new album '18 Months' sounds like a greatest hits collection and is full of "complete bangers".
The 'Stay Awake' star spoke to Capital FM to reveal that he had already had the chance to listen to the Scottish producer and DJ's latest record and was impressed by what he heard.
"Do you know what, the mad thing with Calvin's album is it sounds like a greatest hits," he admitted. "Like, you hear the first eight tracks and they've all been number one or two or three and then he's got other songs in there that no one's heard of [with] Tinie [Tempah] or Dizzee [Rascal].
"They're amazing – I'm not just saying that."
He also went on to admit that he wasn't the biggest fan of everything on the album and that he and Calvin appreciate one another's honesty.
"There's a couple of songs that I'm not so keen on but the album is mostly complete bangers," he said. "Me and Calvin are so honest with eachother. I like play him a single and he's like 'nah, I don't like that or you should improve that'."
He continued: "So when he plays me stuff I always say something nasty – just because you have to."
