Calvin Harris And Ellie Goulding's 'Outside' Is Your New Breakup Jam

Rejection is always hard.

While Ellie Goulding and Calvin Harris got all smoochy for 2012's "I Need Your Love," the duo's latest collaboration, "Outside," follows a doomed love.

The track starts slow, Ellie's airy voice urgently telling the story of being excommunicated from a relationship. "Thought I'd been so strong/ There's a power in what you do/ Now every other day I'll be watching you." Calvin creates a sinister counter-melody with a detached, string-like motif that carries throughout the song.

And it wouldn't be a dance track without those claps building up to the climax, where the lyrics take a vengeful turn. "I'll show you what it feels like/ Now I'm on the outside."

"Outside" is a track off Harris' Motion album, out October 31, and follows the producer's first single, "Slow Acid." The LP also includes features from Gwen Stefani, Tinashe, Haim and Big Sean.
