As the world continues to experience change, looks like change is happening to R&B singer Khalid – who returns to the music scene with a new single ‘New Normal’ and announcing a new album Everything Is Changing, which is currently set to be released this fall. Sporting a new look with blue-dyed hair, the 4:00 minute visual for the lead single off of his upcoming third single shows the 23-year-old singer in different areas including a flower shop and giving a futuristic field.
Khalid debuted the melodic July 11th during his set at Virgin Galatic’s Unity 22 Spaceflight launch earlier this month. In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1 host Annie Mac, the ‘Talk’ singer revealed to the radio host that the pandemic changed him as an artist. He shares “I felt like I was doing everything for everyone else but what do I want to do for myself. I would’ve never been able to write a song like this in 2017 and I wasn’t ready to. All of it has allowed me to grow as an individual, friend, and person. It allowed me to grow for the better.”
