Calvin Harris is warming fans up.

On Friday, the Scottish DJ/producer released his “New Money” track featuring 21 Savage. The song will appear on Harris’ Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2, the long-awaited sequel to his 2017 studio album.

Shortly before announcing “New Money,” Harris revealed Vol. 2’s official release date as well as its star-studded list of guest artists. 21 will be joined by Pusha-T, Lil Durk, Pharrell, Latto, Busta Rhymes, Normani, and more. Though he has yet to share the project’s full tracklist, Harris has already given fans one other cut: “Potion” featuring Dua Lip and Young Thug, which arrived about a month ago.

Harris spoke about Vol. 2 during a May interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, explaining how the second installment differs from the first.

“I felt like the first one, the idea was there, but I didn’t fully carry it through,” he said. “With this one I wanted to have more live drums, guitars … I wanted the original essence. I wanted the layers and the grit and the dirt. And I don’t want things to be mixed too perfectly. I want things to be too loud, and I want things to be like, Fly and the Family Stone, when it’s just mixed on the fly.”
