The mystery singer Calvin Harris teased would feature on his new song 'My Way' is the DJ himself
Calvin Harris is the vocalist on his new song 'My Way'.
The 32-year-old DJ staged a competition earlier this week for fans to guess who would be the mystery artist singing on the track and after previously teaming up with the likes of Rihanna, John Newman, and Ellie Goulding, he thought it was time to throw in a "curve ball" and take over microphone duties himself.
He said: "I like to sing on a song every two or three years, or so.
"I just kind of thought it was a bit of a curve ball. I kind of like the idea of just tracking something out without a celebrity guest feature, and I think the vocal works so why not."
Calvin - whose 2014 single 'Summer' was the last time he took lead vocals himself - admitted fans are unlikely to be hearing any more new music from him in 2016.
He told iHeartRadio: "This ('My Way') is probably the last thing I'll put out this year. I did something with Big Sean for him, which he said might be out this year - which I really hope it is, because I love that. Apart from that, that's it. One song at a time. That's my new mantra. Try to make each song as good as it can possibly be. I'm not trying to do an album. I'm just trying to do good music."
The news may surprise fans as the 'This Is What You Came For' hitmaker has posted a lot on social media about being in the recording studio this year, but he insists he wasn't always working.
He said: "I've been in the studio a lot. But it doesn't necessarily mean I've been working. I just kind of mess around. Just trying to let the ideas come to me. Just trying to figure out what's going on."
