Calvin Harris & Haim Join Forces to 'Pray to God'
Calvin Harris's new album, Motion, is dropping on Election Day (Nov. 4), but songs have been sneaking out this week. Earlier this week he released the guns, blood, and ballet video for "Open Wide," with Big Sean. His latest collaboration, "Pray to God," features Haim. Check it out below
"Pray To God" finds a nice middle-ground between Haim's gleaming, throwback pop -- there's a Stevie Nicks-like "Edge of Seventeen" guitar line running throughout the track -- and Harris's huge, bombastic beats. "Pray To God" also incorporates hammering keyboards, leaning towards the '90s club revival of Kiesza and Gorgon City. Harris keeps the track streamlined, avoiding the sort of synthesizer barrage breakdowns he employed on hits like "Sweet Nothing" with Florence Welch and "Blame" with John Newman.
You can hear all of Motion a week early, right here.
