The 'Let's Go' star admits his upcoming new album will not cover the same ground as he looks to "challenge" himself.

Calvin Harris has revealed that he would love to work with Prince and Andre 3000 in the future.

The 'Feel So Close' producer told the Daily Star that he has found it difficult to give as much of his time as he would like to working in the studio on his new album as he has been so busy this year.

The star has already produced tracks for Cheryl Cole in 2012 and recently unveiled the Ne-Yo featuring 'Let's Go', however, he still has two names who are top of his most wanted list when it comes to collaborations.

He told the publication: "I want to work with Prince. He's amazing. And Andre 3000. Two things that are never going to happen."

Speaking of his hectic year, which included an impressive set at the Coachella Festival 2012 where he was joined by Rihanna, he revealed what he has planned for his next album.

"It's been a pretty busy year – touring, producing for other people, remixing – so I've not been able to spend as much time in the studio as I'd have liked," he revealed. "The main thing I've tried to do with this album is not cover the same old ground. It's still sounding quite epic, but that whole 'I'm Not Alone' thing has been done to death." 

He added: "I want to do something different, to challenge myself and feel in danger of messing up. Sometimes you need to do that to get the best out of yourself."

Meanwhile, Tinie Tempah recently told Capital that he has teamed up with the Scottish DJ on his new album 'Demonstration'.
