Calvin Harris says his third studio album will be called 18 Months.

Writing on Twitter, the DJ, singer and producer revealed that the record would feature collaborations with the likes of Rihanna, Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal, Ayah, Nicky Romero and Dillon Francis.

The follow-up to 2009's Ready for the Weekend is out at the end of October.

The first single from the album, Bounce featuring Kelis, made it to number two in the singles chart last June.

Feels So Close, Let's Go featuring Ne-Yo and We'll Be Coming Back featuring Example have also been released as singles.

Sweet Nothing with Florence Welch on vocals is out later this year.

The 28-year-old said last year that singing on his own tracks in the past had been "too much".

"I'm a producer, I make the songs, I can't stress that enough," he said.

"I'm the guy that writes them, makes them and mixes them.

"No-one really does that but that's what I'm good at."

Harris is performing at Creamfields this weekend and at London's iTunes Festival with David Guetta on 15 September.
