Harris Lied About Losing Album

British singer-songwriter CALVIN HARRIS lied about losing the only copy of his new album at a London airport last summer (09) - because he'd missed a record company deadline to finish it.
The Scottish star feigned outrage last April (08), alleging a hard drive containing his sophomore disc went missing as he returned to the U.K. from America.
He said at the time, "This is not good news for me. I have been walking in circles for a couple of days."
Bosses at his record label Columbia even criticised executives at British Airways for only offering him a paltry compensation.
A spokesperson said at the time, "He has lost the only copy of the new album. It is a big cause for concern - months of work have gone into that.
"They have offered about £750 in compensation. You can't really put a price on something like a new record."
The 25-year-old is now preparing for the album's release, and admits he lied about losing the tracks to buy himself more time to finish the album.
Harris tells PopJustice.com, "The first tactic of delaying the album was pretending that I lost it at Heathrow. That one worked pretty well. That was concocted between me and my sound engineer, Jimmy.
"I should make it clear that they did in fact lose our bags - that is fact - but it was not true that the album was in them. I would never check a hard drive in luggage. So the thing about Heathrow wasn't so much a lie, as, well, an untruth."
