Calvin Harris and Sam Smith Make “Promises” Video

Calvin Harris and Sam Smith have a new house single called “Promises” and there is a retro style lyric video of people clubbing.

Calvin Harris, the world’s richest DJ, made a house music song with English singer Sam Smith. In the lyric video for “Promises” Smith promises to do anything — except marry a mysterious lover.

I make no promises, I can’t do golden rings/But I’ll give you everything (tonight)/Magic is in the air, there ain’t no science here/So come get your everything (tonight)…” pleads Smith.

The track has an nostalgic feel that goes with the acid-y disco-ish house vibe of the video. Notice how it was shot with outdated video camera, and how narrow the display size is compared to widescreen. People had to watch TV like that everyday in the 90’s.

Harris and Smith are pictured here in Ibiza, Spain drinking wine and eating pizza on a rooftop to promote their latest single. They don’t say a lot about the song, just that it is being released. Smith is well known in Europe for being featured on “Latch” by Disclosure.

Catch Harris in person this summer during one of his Las Vegas residencies at Hakkasan, Omnia and Wet Republic. He is also spinning at Pacha Ibiza, making more of that sweet DJ money.
