Calvin Harris’ New ‘Slow Acid’ Video Is A Trip

Calvin Harris is kicking it old school with his new music video for “Slow Acid.” The latest track released off of Motion drops both the vocals and the radio-friendly pop sound of his recent hits, returning to EDM’s more Prodigy-esque roots.

The clip also has a certain “Smack My Bitch Up” quality to it, as it follows a silver-painted woman on an all-night bender, complete with blazing guns and a convenience store robbery. Coupled with the pulse of the music, it’s all pretty trippy.

“Slow Acid” takes a wide turn away from Harris’ recent singles. The VMA-nominated“Summer” topped the charts with its feel-good beats and catchy melody, and the soulful “Blame” featuring John Newman was equally ready-made for radio.

As Harris recently revealed, Ellie Goulding, Gwen Stefani, Tinashe, Haim and Big Sean will all appear on his fourth studio album. Motion drops November 4.
