Calvin Harris and The Weeknd confirm new collaboration 'Over Now'
Calvin Harris and The Weeknd have confirmed their new collaboration, which is set to be released this Friday on August 28.
The Weeknd - real name Abel Tesfaye - took to Twitter to share some artwork from the track, entitled 'Over Now'. He wrote: "over now. friday. @calvinharris (sic)"
Harris also posted some of the tune's artwork on Instagram, writing: "Brand new this Friday @theweeknd (sic)"
The announcement appeared to excite a number of his fans, including record producer Afrojack.
Last week, the pair teased a potential collaboration when they posted an Instagram throwback selfie of themselves drinking together, captioning it: "don't get too confused (sic)". Harris later shared a clip of 'Over Now' on his Story.
It's thought the duo's upcoming release may also feature on Harris' next album. The music star's last hit was the single 'Giant' last year, which featured Rag'n'Bone Man.
The Weeknd recently teamed up with Doja Cat on a remix of 'Blinding Lights' from his acclaimed album, After Hours. The Weeknd and Doja are among the artists confirmed to perform at the MTV VMAs this weekend on August 30.
The Canadian hitmaker is up for an impressive six awards, and is set to perform at an outdoor location after it was announced recently that the ceremony will no longer be held at Brooklyn's Barclays Center due to "safety concerns" amid the coronavirus pandemic.
