MUSIC NEWS: CALVIN HARRIS ‘MOTION’ AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE TODAY, NOVEMBER 4

Grammy-award winning global superstar Calvin Harris releases his explosive fourth studio album today, November 4. The hotly anticipated Motion features a remarkable list of chart-topping artists including Big Sean, Ellie Goulding, Gwen Stefani, HAIM, John Newman, R3hab and more.  Motion is available everywhere in the U.S. now: http://smarturl.it/CHMotion.
 
Currently sitting at #2 on iTunes in the U.S., Motion has already topped iTunes charts in more than 50 countries including the U.K., Germany, Australia, Russia, Mexico, Brazil and India. This week, Calvin shatters records as he becomes the first musician to see three Top 10 songs simultaneously on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart—newly released track "Outside (feat. Ellie Goulding)" debuts at #7, while current single "Blame (feat. John Newman)" is #2 and "Summer" is #9. "Outside" also becomes Calvin's 6th Top 10 on the chart, breaking yet another record.
 
"Blame" is Calvin's fastest-selling and charting U.S. single to date; the song is firmly entrenched in the Top 10 at pop radio, Top 25 at Rhythm radio, and approaching Top 30 at Adult Pop radio.  Airplay on "Blame" continues to grow on over 200 monitored multi-format stations across the country. The official music video for "Blame" has been viewed more than 55 million times across VEVO and YouTube.

To celebrate the album's release, the "Motion Listening Tour" visited five cities in four days last week, where fans from college campuses in Boston to New York City's Village Halloween Parade, tailgates at Rutgers' football game versus Wisconsin, to stops around Philadelphia and Washington DC were invited into the glass listening space of a Calvin Harris-branded truck to hear music from Motion.

For a second consecutive year, Calvin Harris has been named the world's highest-paid DJ by FORBES Magazine. The Grammy-award winning musician recently made history by becoming the first British solo artist to reach one billion streams on Spotify. Declared a "hit parade" by Billboard, Calvin's previous album 18 Months has spawned five RIAA certified singles; in addition to "I Need Your Love" featuring Ellie Goulding and "Let's Go" receiving Platinum certifications, Calvin's chart-topping "Sweet Nothing" featuring Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine and "Feel So Close" have been certified two times Platinum. Calvin's worldwide hit, "We Found Love" featuring Rihanna, has been certified multi-platinum.
