The global sensation multi-platinum pop artist Khalid has just released his latest single “Up All Night”, via Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records, this past Thursday November, 14 amidst embarking on his current Free Spirit World Tour. According to a press release, “Khalid is currently on his ‘Free Spirit’ world tour, which Billboard called ‘captivating.’ In August he wrapped up his North American tour dates where he played back to back nights at STAPLES Center and Madison Square Garden. This tour is in support of his latest album Free Spirit, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200.”
Khalid’s latest musical offering “Up All Night” has the Texas native R&B crooner flexing his smooth, suave and debonair persona. According to Consequence of Sound “Although the track’s title seems to hint at an evening of debauchery, the offering is actually all about deep contemplations — you know, the kind that keep you wide awake. ‘Take me ’round the world and back again/ As I’m searching for my soul out there,’ Khalid croons on the Chrome Sparks-produced cut…” Khalid has received numerous praise and accolades as of late. As previously stated in a press release, Khalid “…recently named one of Time’s Most Influential People of 2019, recently released his sophomore album Free Spirit which was declared a New York Times ‘Critic’s Pick’ and was called ‘superb’ by the Associated Press. The album, which has been certified platinum by the RIAA, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and features the multi-format #1 single ‘Talk.'”
Khalid’s sophomore effort, Free Spirit, was released back in April of this year, which was the follow up to his debut album 2017’s American Teen. The press release furthers that, “Khalid catapulted into massive worldwide success when he released his first single ‘Location’ right before his high school graduation. The song’s domination (5x platinum) led to Khalid’s major label deal with Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records followed by the release of his debut album, the double platinum certified, American Teen. The album, which garnered Khalid 5 Grammy nominations (along with numerous other nominations) received mass critical acclaim with Rolling Stone calling Khalid a ‘pop prodigy’ and TIME Magazine stating, ‘His thoughtful, relatable reflections on modern youth culture and the limitations of love are just as pitch-perfect as his soulful, measured delivery.’”
In anticipation of new music to be released within the forthcoming year, Khalid enthusiastically spoke on his latest musical offering and what he’s been up to lately saying:
“‘Up All Night’ is a song that I wrote while on tour. It’s really special to me and I’m so excited that I am able to share it with my fans so quickly. I’ve been touring the world, and interacting with my fans each night has been really inspiring. I’m working hard on some more new music to share with you guys soon!”
