    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Summer” is a song by Scottish recording artist Calvin Harris, released on 14 March 2014 as the lead single from his upcoming fourth studio album. The accompanying music video was directed by Emil Nava and premiered on 6 April 2014. The video features a cameo appearance by English actor Jason Statham.

    Like his previous hit “Feel So Close”, Harris returns as a vocalist on “Summer”. The song debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, becoming Harris’s sixth UK number-one single.


    On 11 March 2014, Harris posted fifteen-second clips of the song on Instagram up until 14 March, when it was released digitally in certain territories and made its radio debut on Capital FM.

Critical reception

    Lewis Corner of Digital Spy rated “Summer” three-and-a-half out of five stars, calling it “a bright and vibrant banger destined to soundtrack the warmer months”. Jamieson Cox of Time magazine felt that the song “doesn’t have much lyrical meat on its bones, but coming on the heels of one of the most severe winters in recent memory, listeners are likely hungry for anything that suggests a warmer, sunnier season. One of Harris’ trademark gigantic synth hooks doesn’t hurt its digestibility, either.” Robbie Daw of Idolator viewed the track as “a shameless bid at nabbing an ‘Umbrella’/‘California Gurls’/‘Blurred Lines’-like Song Of The Summer anthem”.
