Halsey, Khalid and benny blanco have teamed up on a gorgeous single
benny blanco has released his debut single ‘Eastside’ featuring wunderkind’s Khalid and Halsey. It’s hazy and beautiful and filled to the brim with yearning. It’s a suburban coming of age anthem we all could use.
There were a bunch of stellar artists that contributed to this song, including Ed Sheeran and Cashmere Cat. In an interview with Zane Lowe, blanco explains “This is how I work on records, I’m not a part of this like old school, like, one person does this. If I have a homie over, and they’re listening to the song and they’re like, ‘Oh, I got a guitar lick for that,’ or ‘Let me throw some drums on that,’ ‘Let me let me do this’… For me, it’s just the way music comes together. It doesn’t have to be like a job. It is supposed to be fun.”
The music video is one of the most gorgeous clips we’ve seen all year. Telling tiny stories about the trials and tribulations of young love. It recalls the magic of The Spectacular Now and Rushmore and made me feel a very special kind of way.
