Crossover EDM ambassador Calvin Harris has announced a new album called Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, due out on June 30. He took to Twitter to share a teaser video featuring all of his guests on the album, and it's an impressive list. Frank Ocean, Travis Scott, Kehlani, Future, Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, Big Sean, John Legend, Khalid, Migos, Schoolboy Q, Ariana Grande, Young Thug, D.R.A.M., Nicki Minaj, Lil Yachty, Jessie Reyez, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Snoop Dogg will all make appearances.

The video also features one and a half minutes of a previously unreleased tune featuring Future and 18-year-old R&B artist Khalid; it seems like a moody-yet-celebratory number moving at a distinctly California crawl.

Harris' LP announcement follows his recent singles "Heatstroke," featuring Ariana Grande, Young Thug, and Pharrell, and "Slide," featuring Frank Ocean and Migos. Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1will be out on June 30.
