Khalid previews his new album with 'Eleven'

"Eleven" arrives a few months after the single "Up All Night," which is also set to appear on Khalid's forthcoming new album.

The guitar-infused "Eleven" was released alongside a lyric video, which depicts a sports car racing through the city at nighttime.

"Late at night, eleven, we're cruisin'/ Lately, I've been watchin' your movements/ If I'm the only one that you're choosin'/ Am I your favorite drug you've been usin'?" Khalid croons in the new single.

In a recent sit-down with Zane Lowe for "New Music Daily," the American singer-songwriter opened up about the inspiration behind "Eleven," which he described as the "perfect track" to drive to.

"I love making music you could drive to, and I feel like 'Eleven' is, like, the perfect track to just play on your stereo, grip the wheel of your car and just, I mean, just go where the wind takes you. That's what this song makes me feel like," he explained.

Khalid also noted that he wanted to do "something different" with his latest single, which also pays tribute to his longtime interest in R&B music.

"My mom lives, breathes, sleeps R&B music, so I really feel like this is the ode to just people who came before me, and I really love the song. It reminds me of that Timbaland era and Aaliyah and music just felt so good," he told Lowe.

"Eleven" will be featured on Khalid's forthcoming third studio album, which will follow his 2019 "Free Spirit."

Details about the yet-untitled full-length are still scarce to date, although the 21-year-old vocalist told Lowe that he plans on dropping an EP before his next studio opus.

While his new LP is still in the works, Khalid recently earned a Grammy nomination for his latest album, "Talk."

The award-winning vocalist also made the list of Spotify's most-streamed artists in 2019, coming behind Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Drake, and Post Malone.
