May 10 (UPI) -- Calvin Harris will collaborate with Katy Perry on his star-studded new album.

The 33-year-old British DJ announced Tuesday on Instagram that he will release the album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 featuring Perry, Ariana Grande, John Legend and other artists in June.

"ALBUM COMING JUNE 30," he captioned a video featuring a list of collaborators.

Fans immediately commented on Harris working with Perry, who has a fraught history with the DJ's ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift. Perry told Entertainment Weekly this week that she won't be responding to Swift's song "Bad Blood" on her own new album.

"I think [my new album is] a very empowered record," the 32-year-old singer said. "There is no one thing that's calling out any one person."

"Honestly, when women come together and they decide to unite, this world is going to be a better place. Period end of story," she added.
