The stars are coming out for Calvin Harris' new album.

On Tuesday afternoon, the record producer and singer took to social media with a big announcement for his fans.

After much anticipation, Calvin will release a brand-new album titled Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 this summer.

"ALBUM COMING JUNE 30," the DJ teased on Instagram with a video clip of all the artists featured on his upcoming project.

So who is lending their voice and talents to the exciting new project? The question really is, where do we even begin?

Big Sean, Nicki Minaj and Snoop Dogg are some of the rappers set to appear. Pop superstars Ariana Grande and Katy Perry are also slated to collaborate on tracks.

And before fans begin to speculate that it's shade towards Taylor Swift, we have to remind you that Calvin and Katy have been friendly for years.

Let us rewind to 2013 when the pair met up at the MTV EMAs in Amsterdam with Ellie Goulding and Rita Ora. In other words, the music industry is a small place after all.

Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 is Calvin's first full-length album since 2014's Motion. The album featured hit songs and collaborations with artists ranging from Tinashe and Gwen Stefani to HAIM and Ellie.

In January, Calvin teased the fact that he would be releasing 10 new songs in 2017. Back in February, fans got an early taste with the release of "Slide" featuring Frank Ocean and Migos.

One month later and the arrival of "Heatstroke" with Ariana, Pharrell Williams and Young Thug became public. The question now remains: Will Calvin have the song of the summer? Stay tuned!
