Ready For The Weekend is the second studio album by Scottish recording artist Calvin Harris, released in 2009. The album topped the UK Albums Chart and was certified Gold by the British Phonographic Industry.
Harris had been working on the album since the release of his debut album, I Created Disco [MOVLP1185], with the first tracks being recorded in 2008. In April 2008, Harris stated that the only existing copy of his then-upcoming album was lost when his laptop was misplaced during the baggage handling problems at the opening of London Heathrow Terminal 5. He later stated on the BBC's Glastonbury Festival 2008 coverage that he got his baggage back including the album within a few days. However, Harris ultimately admitted in April 2009 that this was a lie as the album was not in his luggage at all, and that he hoped that what he said would give him more time to finish recording the album.
"I'm Not Alone" was released as the album's lead single. The song debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, knocking off Lady Gaga's "Poker Face". It spent two weeks atop the chart, before dropping to number three in its third week. "Ready for the Weekend" was released as the album's second single, peaking at number three on the UK Singles Chart. "Flashback" and "You Used to Hold Me", were also released as singles. An extended version of Harris's 2008 chart-topping collaboration with Dizzee Rascal, "Dance wiv Me", is also included on the album. "Yeah Yeah Yeah La La La" was used in a Coca-Cola advertisement in the summer of 2009.
