Calvin Harris rules out working with Taylor Swift

Calvin Harris is working on "a bunch of stuff" including projects with Rihanna, Ellie Goulding and John Newman.

But the one person not on his list is his girlfriend, Taylor Swift.

The Scottish DJ says: "We haven't even spoken about it, but I can't see it happening. She is about to take a long break."

On Friday, he premiered his current track with Rihanna - That Is What You Came For on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw.

It is the second time Calvin has worked with Rihanna, five years after We Found Love was released.

During an interview with the American radio show On Air with Ryan Seacrest, the 32-year-old said: "She has an iconic voice and when you give her a certain type of song it's just next level."

He is also teaming up with Ellie Goulding again, but admits it is early days.

"We have half a track, I don't know about the half," he says. "You know when you have half a track and you are not really sure how to make it a full track?

"You have just got to step out of the studio, step outside, sit down on the grass, make a sandwich* and just let the idea come.

"If the idea doesn't come to you, then you weren't supposed to have the idea."

And the star - whose real name is Adam Richard Wiles - has been explaining why he regrets calling himself Calvin Harris.

"I wanted a stage name. Fatboy Slim is Norman Cook, Alesso's real name is Alessandro, Avicii's name is Tim.

"I picked a name and that's where I went wrong, but it's too late now."
