Friday Music Pick - Khalid

Khalid’s new album ‘Free Spirit’ dropped today, 5 Apr. We’ve already heard the fantastic track ‘Better’ and the rest of the album is just as good as you would expect it to be from the very talented R&B singer. Alongside the album, Khalid released a 46-minute short film, also titled ‘Free Spirit’ (watch it below).

He has collaborated with many artists on his second studio album, including John Mayer, Disclosure and Father John Misty. ‘Free Spirit’ follows the success of his debut album ‘American Teen’ which was released in 2017.

Khalid has taken inspiration for his music from artists Frank Ocean and Alina Baraz, with ‘Cry Me A River’ influencing his track ‘My Bad’ on the new album. Although it’s his mother that he credits for taking him in the direction of a music career.

Check out the albums lead single ‘Talk’ below, which was produced by Disclosure:
