Khalid will perform his new single "New Normal" during Virgin Galactic's "Unity 22" Spaceflight launch on Sunday (July 11). The track -- which officially drops on July 21 on Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records --will soundtrack the rocket's take-off and after the Spaceflight returns to Earth the singer will play a short celebratory set that will include the first-ever live performance of "New Normal."
“I am so excited and honored to be performing at this historic event. It’s always been a dream of mine to go to space and It’s incredible that Virgin Galactic is working to make space accessible for people to explore in the very near future," Khalid said in a statement announcing his stellar gig.
"My new song 'New Normal' is all about these new journeys we are taking after experiencing so much change during the pandemic. The future is now, everything is changing and this new normal we are all living in is proof that we can find our way through hard times. It’s so cool to know that Sir Richard Branson and all of the mission specialists will be listening to it on their journey. I can’t wait to perform for all of them upon their return to earth!”
