Calvin Harris, Tom Grennan stand behind summer 2021’s anthem—stream ‘By Your Side’

“I’ve got a big banger!”

Calvin Harris didn’t exactly mince words in the concluding seconds of the 20-second sampler of “By Your Side,” shared to his Instagram page with rainbow-inflected visual pomp and circumstance on May 14. Bursting onto streaming platforms where, right now, it’s bucking with the “big summer energy buzz” that Harris touted in his initial tease, the Tom Grennan feature arises as the latest Calvin Harris project affiliate.

It’s an animated answer to Harris’ venture under his main project’s masthead, August 2020’s “Over Now” alongside The Weeknd. Opening with the metallic texture of guitar chords and Grennan’s throaty hook, “By Your Side” chugs forth to sun-sunsoaked breakdowns. What’s missing? Just a cold one in your hand.

Calvin Harris, we’d agree—you’ve got a big banger. Summer 2021’s anthem is streaming below.
