On part one, Khalid will discuss the various artists that have inspired his music, such as Frank Ocean and Alina Baraz. He’ll also talk about an unreleased song he made with Majid Jordan, working with Active Child and texting his mom while riding in an elevator with Justin Timberlake (Khalid will also note how “Cry Me a River” influenced his own Free Spirit track, “My Bad”).
Part two of “Free Spirit Radio” will find Khalid breaking down Free Spirit track-by-track with Zane Lowe. The singer will discuss collaborating with Father John Misty and Disclosure, co-writing with Sara Aarons and Emily Warren, his desire to experiment more with folk music and the important role his mom plays when it comes to approving tracks on the record.
Khalid’s Free Spirit arrives April 5th and follows his celebrated 2017 debut, American Teen. The singer will embark on a massive North American tour in support of the new record June 20th in Phoenix, Arizona.
