Khalid Premieres New Song “New Normal” on BBC Radio 1
- American singer-songwriter Khalid premiered a new song “New Normal” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Annie Mac.
The song is the first single off of his upcoming third studio album “Everything Is Changing”, which is expected to be released this fall.
It was written by Khalid, John Hill and Active Child. Produced by John Hill and Active Child.
The accompanying music video was directed by Andy Hines.
Khalid said pf the song, “”New Normal” was inspired by how I was feeling during the pandemic and the emotional toll that quarantine took on me and my friends. Everything is Changing as an album really takes that a step further with all of the songs centering around trying to find a purpose and a sense of self in a world where everything is digitally connect 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.”
Earlier this month, Khalid debuted “New Normal” at Virgin Galactic’s “Unity 22” Spaceflight launch. Not only did “New Normal” play in the shuttle during its descent back to earth, but Khalid was also on hand to perform for the crew, including Sir Richard Branson, after they completed their mission. Khalid was honored that “New Normal” was chosen to help usher in such a historic moment.
