LOS ANGELES, CA-  Silky smooth vocals and cutting-edge production has been what’s made the young singer/songwriter Khalid stand out from the crowd. His 2017 debut album American Teen, is a dreamy collection of bedroom pop, R&B and soul that reflects those attributes.

Khalid has followed up with 2017 breakout album with the five song EP Suncity (released October 19, 2018). While still sticking to his keen sense of lush sonic production, Suncity finds Khalid exploring new sounds and musical elements, particularly, acoustic string instruments. The recording of “Vertigo”, in particular, utilizes a string ensemble to help establish is a delicately tender mood.

Khalid has teamed up with Vevo to bring a series of Vevo X session recordings. The first video released is a live recording of “Vertigo” where Khalid is accompanied by wonderfully crisp string quartet. Check it out below and stay tuned for more Khalid Vevo X collaborations to come.
