Khalid spent a lot of time "Up All Night" during the Free Spirit world tour, when he penned his 26th career Billboard Hot 100 entry.
"Up All Night" unpacks all of Khalid's late-night thoughts that seem to bog him down. "Take me 'round the world and back again/ As I'm searching for my soul out there," he starts off the ethereal R&B jam. But he continuously reminds himself that he's "only getting older by the day" and nods to his Free Spirit track "Alive" ("Gatekeeper, can you show me more to life?") when he sings in his newer track, "But I'm thankful that I'm still alive/ 'Cause there's so much more left to find."
