As Khalid prepares for the arrival of his latest studio project, Free Spirit, the singer/songwriter has decided to share a new single today titled, “Don’t Pretend.”

As a gift to fans to tide them over until his new album arrives, the silky, guitar-driven ballad sees Khalid yearning for true love and holding out until he finds it. “Keeping my phone alive/Hoping that you’ll call this time/Thought I heard you ringing,” he croons on the single. “You know, I hear things sometimes/Come alive, come alive/Come alive, come alive/Show me, don’t pretend.” Toronto rapper SAFE also lends his vocal talents to the track. Listen to the track in full above.

Free Spirit marks Khalid’s sophomore album which is set to release on Friday. The new 16-track project will include a collaborative single with John Mayer called “Outta My Head,” the Disclosure-produced lead song “Talk” and the previously-released “Self,” “My Bad,” and “Better.” In conjunction with the album’s release, Khalid will be setting out on his Khalid Free Spirit World Tour which kicks off in Phoenix on June 20.
