"We brought the band over about two years ago and we lost so much money, it didn't seem to be a good idea again," Harris tells Spinner. "Bringing so many people over there to just play for 500 people doesn't work out exactly. So I'm sticking to the DJ sets in America, sadly. I like touring with the band. No one wants to [lose money]. It's not good for anyone."
Some fans will be happy to hear that Harris is currently ironing out the details of collaborations with Kylie Minogue and Katy Perry. If all works out, it'll mark the second time he's worked with Minogue after co-writing and producing two cuts for her 2007 album 'X.' As for his first time working with Perry, Harris says, "Details are a bit sketchy at the moment."
"When I can, I do as much as possible," he says of how he composes music for others. "Usually, I need a little help with the words. There are things I write that they don't want to sing, so I'll always do the music. To date, that's how it'll work. I think with Katy Perry it'll be slightly different. I think she likes to be sort of involved, so it will be different with her. It's still a novelty to hear other people singing on my tracks, honestly."
'Ready for the Weekend' will be released stateside Oct. 6 on Ultra Records and features guest spots by Mary Pearce on the title track and rapper Dizzee Rascal on 'Dance Wiv Me.'
