We’ll definitely be “talk”-ing after this song.
Singer and songwriter, Khalid, has come out with a new single “Talk” and he’s collaborated with British electronic-duo, Disclosure, to make the perfect romance song for the month of L.O.V.E. So if you’re looking to express some deep feelings for a certain someone, this song is for you.
The song pushes a bouncy beat of crisp drums and elastic synths that work between Khalid’s deep gentle (husky, sexy…can we continue?) voice. Favourite part of the song were lyrics to Khalid singing “I’ve never felt like this before,” Khalid sings, “I apologize if I’m moving too far/Can’t we just talk? Can’t we just talk?/Figure out where we’re going.” It’s a similar vibe to his previous Grammy nominated song “Location.” Khalid sings “So won’t you send me your location, lets focus on communicating,” which implies communication is important to take the next step forward – Or it could just mean that this guy really likes to talk.
Khalid is also taking some risk in his music, letting his work experience more electronic sound than usual. I must to say, so far he hasn’t disappoint us with these collaborations.
“This album is the culmination of all of the growth and experiences I have gathered over the past two remarkable years,” he said in a statement, while promoting his new single on Apple Music’s Beats 1. “I have been in the studio pouring my soul and spirit to create a body of work that I hope speaks to each and every one of you and I am excited to share ‘Talk,’ the first taste of that today.”
How did the he decide to collaborate with the duo? During the interview Khalid said “I met up with Disclosure, they played me this crazy-ass instrumental,” he added “I hopped on it for sure, and made one my favorite songs I’ve ever been a part of, so I really thank them for that, too.”
“Talk” is the first song from Khalid’s forthcoming sophomore album which is expected to arrive in April.
So keep a look out!
