Since Calvin Harris released “Slide” with Frank Ocean and members of Migos, he has registered 8 new songs with ASCAP – The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, which is an American not-for-profit performance-rights organization that protects its members’ musical copyrights.
Artists often register their songs in advance of them being released in order to protect their work from being stolen by other artists, so in some way or another, these songs that Calvin Harris (real name Adam Richard Wiles) has registered, may come to light.
According to Dancing Astronaut, the songs titled “When You’re Drug Free,” “Things I’ve Done,” “Manufacture & Develop,” “Boring Souvenir,” “Amateur Dramatics,” and “Above Suspicion Soulfulness” are all completely credited to the hit making producer/DJ’s name. Two other songs on which the “Sweet Nothing” producer is credited seem to be collaborations with two different UK singers.
Harris also has a history of scoring TV shows. He actually co-wrote Kevin Hart’s TV show, The Real Husbands of Hollywood‘s theme song, which means that there is a possibility that some of the registered songs could be for TV shows or movies.
The most recent Calvin Harris album, Motion, was released in 2014, meaning that a new set of releases is very possible. While we can hope that these registered songs will be coming out soon, there is no guarantee. So for now, let’s keep “Slide” on repeat.
