NEW MUSIC: KHALID | SKYLINE
Singer-songwriter Khalid premiered a new song, “Skyline,” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo. The song will appear on his upcoming third studio album, “Everything Is Changing.” On the disco-bop produced by Chrome Sparks, Khalid leaves all his worries behind and joyrides with his love interest on the carefree anthem. He wrote the song in 2020. Khalid told Clara Amfo about the song, “I've been writing music for this album. It's 2020. I felt like a lot of the songs were very dramatic. It's sad, melancholy. This song, to me, is just a recharge-like full summer vibe. Now hopefully, it calms my fans and gets them through the dark times that we are going through.” He continued, “We deserve joy, deserve love, and we deserve life. And if I can be a very vessel and give that to my fans and the people who support me, that's what I want to do.” In a statement, Khalid pointed out that he was “inspired by how I was feeling during the pandemic and the emotional toll that quarantine took on me and my friends." He continued, adding that his new album “really takes that a step further with all of the songs centring around trying to find a purpose and a sense of self in a world where everything is digitally connected but emotionally disconnected. As we all come out of quarantine and venture more into the world and try to reconnect with people we haven’t seen in over a year; I hope the messages explored within the album open up conversations and allow people to access their feelings in a new way.” The track is the follow-up to “Last Call” and is off his upcoming album, "Everything Is Changing," the follow-up to last year’s "Scenic Drive."
