khalid american teen

The army brat turned burgeoning El Paso star shares the title track from his debut album, “American Teen”.

In an interview with NOISEY earlier this year, Khalid admitted to being nervous before his first big tour. He had only performed under his stage name of “Khalid” a handful of times prior. But the 18-year-old born Khalid Robinson felt the energy. His weathered vocals would wear the pride of the 915 wherever he goes. On “American Teen,” the title track of his debut album he swaps out the washed out, gentle vibes of his “Location” breakthrough for ’80s stadium pop and shimmer. His voice booms with far more fun and confidence, all the while underlining his main point of living life as an outsider, as an “American Teen”. Listen below. Khalid’s debut album arrives on March 3.
