Ever since Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift started dating last year, fans have been wondering if the couple will ever make sweet music together.
There appears to be genuine interest in a Taylor Swift-Calvin Harris collaboration. How would it work? Would Taylor Swift write the lyrics? Will two of pop’s hottest artists ever get together in the recording studio? Harris, 32, says it’s not going to happen anytime soon. In fact, the couple hasn’t even discussed the possibility of working together. That’s because of important little thing: Swift is currently on a break.
During a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, the “How Deep Is Your Love” DJ claims that the thought of working together has never come up between the two. Really.
“You know, we haven’t even spoken about it. I can’t see it happening though. No. She’s about to take a long break.”
Check out the rest of Calvin Harris’ interview with Ryan Seacrest where he gushes over Taylor Swift and reveals why he chose to work with Rihanna again.
In case you haven’t noticed, the first time Taylor Swift hinted that she was taking a break after her successful 1989 album and supporting tour was back in November 2015 with NME magazine. In the open and honest interview, the 26-year-old singer realized that both her fans and the general public need a “break” from her.
“I think I should take some time off. I think people might need a break from me. I’m going to…I don’t know. Hang out with my friends. Write new music. Maybe not write new music. I don’t know.”
Even the writer noticed that Taylor wasn’t sure of what she should do yet. But an inside source knew what the singer plans to do on her rumored three-year break from music. The insider told the Hollywood Life that Taylor has no plans to release a new album anytime soon.
“Taylor is really looking forward to an extended break after her tour and the holidays. She will still write and collaborate when the timing is right but she has been telling people not to expect a new album from her for potentially three years.”
Swift recently told Vogue magazine that she has been enjoying most of her downtime, but she has no clue when she will release her next album. She still seemed unsure about her future.
“This is the first time in 10 years that I haven’t known. I just decided that after the past year, with all of the unbelievable things that happened, I decided I was going to live my life a little bit without the pressure on myself to create something.”
Though Taylor is not going to stop making music, she did tell Vogue that she would like to take on other skills that would make her feel more like a well-rounded person. She revealed that she would like to learn how to make the perfect cocktail and change a tire, and maybe save someone’s life someday.
“[I’d like] to be able to save somebody if they’re drowning. So CPR, all the various kinds of chest compressions. People tell you little tips, but that’s different from actually taking a class and getting certified.”

Hearing the news that Swift is taking a break from the music scene is interesting since the singer usually releases an album every two years, like clockwork. Fans may not hear new music from her until 2017 or 2018 the latest. Swift is known for strategically mapping out her music career, so it looks like she will be living her life more spontaneously and taking on other roles such as the co-chair of this year’s Met Gala. Even though she’s on a break from music, we’ll still be hearing plenty more about Swift in coming weeks.
