He will return to the famous super-club to play on Fridays from June 3 to September 2.

Calvin - who lives on a 138-acre farm in Ibiza after previously selling two mansions in Los Angeles – recently admitted he's “not good at being a celebrity”.

He said: “I’m definitely happier just hanging out on my own in a room. Ever since I’ve been a kid, that’s the case. I still have no hobbies.

“At some stage it would be great to learn to do something else. I have a very limited repertoire.”

Calvin has also conceded there's been an element of luck behind his career success, admitting that his “reckless decisions” have paid off in spectacular fashion.

Reflecting on his achievements, he previously said: “I got lucky in different ways.

“I wrote the right songs at the right time, I picked the right genre of music, I started DJing in the US at the right time.

“If I hadn’t made all of these reckless decisions, I wouldn’t have been put in that place. Every time I play in front of people, I’m celebrating the fact I got out of that situation."
