The duo has teamed up twice before for the songs “Outside” and “I Need Your Love.” Music videos for the two tracks have garnered nearly a billion views combined.
It’s been some time since the two have worked together, though. “I Need Your Love” and”Outside” were released in 2012 and 2014, respectively.
The singer remained secretive about the new track, but did let one detail slip. She said that there will be another male artist in addition to Harris featured on it. All Goulding admitted is that the male artist is not Justin Bieber. “That’s all you’re getting,” she said.
Harris and Goulding are both on the list of headliners for Coachella this month, which would be an exciting chance for the pair to debut the new single live. This will be Harris’ first track he’s released since “How Deep is Your Love,” which he recorded with Disciples in 2015.
Goulding, meanwhile, is in the midst of a worldwide tour, which will begin its North American leg on April 1. She’s also been busy playing Cupid–she set up friend Taylor Swift with Harris.
“I did play matchmaker, that’s true. Calvin is a really great mate and he’s so fantastic, and is such a cool person who I love,” Goulding said. “I thought, ‘They’re both really awesome and both really tall, they’ll be brilliant together.'”
The love advice has been successful so far. Harris and Swift just celebrated their one-year anniversary.
