Queens artist Anik Khan is getting ready to release a new project on April 28th titled Kites, which has been getting a ton of promotion lately. Sitting down with Zane Lowe & Beats 1 earlier today, the Bengali-born artist decided to give them the green light to premiere his smooth, acoustic-driven title track, “Kites."
"'Kites' is about having an aerial perspective and realizing what's important to me," he said. "And understanding that regardless if I stay afloat or if I fall—kites just don't fall, they fall to grace. What's important is the people steering. It's basically about who's important to me and that's my loved ones. And those are the ones steering and keeping me up. Or if I'm falling, they're the ones catching me so I can go up again.”
Take a listen and let us know what you think.
I'm not used to you if I fall down
I cant feel the wind beneath me
It's on you to keep believing
Something needs to give right now
Or this is aint working out
