The 22-year-old part-Spanish American singer is set to appear on the Scottish DJ and record producer’s forthcoming album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1.

Harris released a video teaser via Twitter for the album with Kehlani’ name appearing as one of the featured artists on his LP.

Others include Frank Ocean, Travis Scott, Future, Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, Big Sean, John Legend, Khalid, Migos, Schoolboy Q, Ariana Grande, Yung Thug, D.R.A.M., Nicki Minaj, Lil Yachty, Jessie Reyez, Partynextdoor, and Snoop Dogg.

Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 gives the sense of a departure from the usual Harris sound, a hint amplified by the much groovier, toned-down disco funk vibe of the soundtrack tune. The sunset visual background fits perfectly with the song’s laidback style. The clip also features vocals from Khalid and Future.

Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 is scheduled for release Friday, June 30.
