Calvin Harris has spoken out for the first time since a car accident put him in the hospital.

“Thank you so much for your messages and sorry to any disappointment I caused with the show cancellations,” Harris wrote on Twitter. “I’m feeling lucky and very grateful [right now].”

Last week, Harris – whose real name is Adam Wiles – was hospitalized briefly in Los Angeles, following what his team called a “collision” en route to the airport. In the wake of the crash, Harris has canceled some performances. “Adam is still recovering from the injuries sustained in the car accident last Friday,” a statement read on Harris’ Facebook page Thursday. “Unfortunately, as a result he will not be able to perform in Las Vegas at Hakkasan tonight, 5/26 and Omnia tomorrow, 5/27. He has asked us to pass on his apologies to everyone who was due to attend the shows and hopes to be back to his normal schedule soon.”
