David Guetta has revealed that he â€˜doesnâ€™t think about albumsâ€™ as the nature of streaming has â€˜changed everythingâ€™.
The French DJ and EDM giant was speaking to NME on the red carpet of the MTV EMA Awards 2017,Â where he was named â€˜Best Electronicâ€™ act and performed new single â€˜Dirty Sexy Moneyâ€™ with Charli XCX and French Montana. Watch his performance below.
When asked about his favourite album of 2017, Guetta replied: â€œItâ€™s going to sound a little crazy, but I donâ€™t think so much about albums. I should be ashamed to say that, but I have to admit it. Streaming has been changing everything. There are only a few acts that make me buy albums, but not so many to be honest. I just listen to singles.â€
However, he admitted that he was a fan of the recent output of rival DJ Calvin Harris.
â€œYou know who amazed me? Calvin Harris,â€ said Guetta. â€œThere was such a change in his production, and I think his album is really incredible. Of course, thereâ€™s a healthy competition between us. I only talk about him in a nice way.â€
Despite listening primarily to singles on streaming services, Guetta did reveal that heâ€™s currently adding the finishing touches to his next full studio album.
â€œIâ€™m trying to finish my album. It features â€˜Dirty Sexy Moneyâ€™ with Charli XCX and French Montana. Letâ€™s see how it goes. Iâ€™m still searching, but I think between â€˜Dirty Sexy Moneyâ€™ and â€˜2Uâ€™ with Justin Bieber, you see where Iâ€™m going.â€
