Here are 5 thoughts you will have when listening to Khalid's latest album:
1. This is about to be goodGiphy
The album begins with a magical and cinematic "Intro" song. Featuring Stranger Things vibes alongside Khalid's distinct raspy voice, the song prepares the listener for the emotional journey the album provides.
2. Update: it's DAMN GOOD.Giphy
"Back Luck" officially starts out the album, already being listed as just one of the popular hits from "Free Spirit" on Apple Music.
3. This is NOT the Khalid we've heard beforeGiphy
Khalid ultimately has mastered the skill of being able to bring a consistent vibe throughout each of his songs. Whether about lightheartedly not being able to get someone out of your head, or more somber songs, his consistent sound, and older vintage feel remains.
4. "Alexa, add 5 boxes of tissues to my cart".Giphy
In expected Khalid style, his album features some songs that reveal life's everyday troubles in addition to his own personal struggles with self-perception and finding happiness. Featured lyrics like "Heaven, make me an offer. Lord, there's nothing for me left here." and "I shouldn't have to die to feel alive." will hit you harder than expected.
5. I CAN'T STOP.Giphy
*has to constantly listen to the album on repeat to satisfy oneself until we're blessed with more*
So final thoughts of the album?Giphy
AND he's actively involved with his fans and LOWERING merchandise/ticket prices for the sake of us all... a KING.Giphy
A singer as good as his heart? WE'RE FOR IT.
