Next month, Khalid will release his highly anticipated new album Free Spirit, which will also come with a short film. A few tracks have already been released from the sophomore album including the Disclosure-produced “Talk“, “Better” and “My Bad“. Doing his bit to increase the hype even more, the Houston singer releases yet another single from the upcoming project in the shape of “Self“.
Produced by Hit-Boy, the introspective song finds the 21-year-old doing some soul searching. It’s a deep but delicate cut that serves as a beautiful moment of confession for Khalid’s deepest thoughts. “Always had a little trouble with self-reflections,” sings Khalid. “Does my raw emotion make me less of a man?”
He eventually comes to a realization: “I’ve been so used to winning / It was hard for me to lose / No, there’s nothing wrong with me / Must be something wrong with you.”
As mentioned earlier, two days before the album’s release, Khalid will debut a short film accompaniment. Initially announcing the news via social media, the short film will be available for one night only in theaters worldwide. It will also give viewers and fans alike the chance to hear the new project in full before hitting streaming platforms.
