Khalid Announces ‘Suncity’ EP

Khalid is taking fans to Suncity on his new EP.

The R&B crooner has announced an Oct. 19 release date for the project, which was named after his hometown of El Paso, Texas. The cover art finds Khalid sitting in front of a brick house and a vintage blue Mustang.

“Suncity The EP. 10/19. Start of a new era,” tweeted Khalid, who dropped the first single “Better” last month.

“I’ve been working so hard to make music that really emulates what’s inside of me,” he told Billboard at the American Music Awards, where he won Favorite Male Artist for Soul/R&B. “And I’ve really been taking risks, so hopefully the risks pay off.”

Suncity marks Khalid’s first project 2017’s Grammy-nominated debut American Teen, which was certified platinum and spawned the hit singles “Location” and “Young Dumb & Broke.” His Normani collaboration “Love Lies” peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100.
