Listen: Calvin Harris & Florence + the Machine's "Sweet Nothing"

What we know about Scottish DJ Calvin Harris' collaboration with Florence + the Machine: it's called "Sweet Nothing," the video has been shot and for both of the musicians the collaboration was a favor. Flo told us at Lollapalooza, "['Sweet Nothing'] was a swap. I wanted a remix, he wanted a vocal... So we traded." 

And as expected, it's a high-octane club banger: classic Florence Welch anthemic vocals mixed with Harris' signature blend of dub/dance beats. Soak it up, Florence fans, because it might be the last we hear from the "Breath of Life" singer for a while—the British songstress is planning on taking a year off.

"Sweet Nothing" will be featured on Calvin Harris' upcoming third studio album, 18 Months, due out October 29.
