*The copyright for the cover art for the single “Desire” by the artists Calvin Harris & Sam Smith is believed to belong to the label Sony, or the graphic artist(s).

“Desire” marks the second collaboration between Scottish DJ & producer Calvin Harris and English singer-songwriter Sam Smith. The trance single was released on the 28th July through Sony Records.

The trance song marks a new sound for producer Harris, who is usually known for his upbeat electronic and house tracks. However, after the success of his first single “Miracle” with Ellie Goulding earlier this year, Harris has been experimenting more and more with the trance genres. Lyrically, “Desire” explores feelings of wanting to disconnect from reality and detaching from all worries and stresses, as well as focusing on the intimacy with a partner or crush.

The lyric video for the song was released on YouTube on the 28th July 2023. In 11 days, the video had almost 1 million views.
