Khazali yesterday shared ‘Passion Controller’ the second single to be released from his upcoming EP, ‘The Rush’, out March 11 via Kitsuné Musique.

‘Passion Controller’ is a funky, string-adorned pop experiment with a nostalgic touch, featuring Khazali’s smooth-as-silk vocal timbre. A dazzling display of his knack for catchy hooks and ear worm melodies. The song follows on the heels of the extended play’s lead single, ‘Better with the Devil’.

Hear it below.

Speaking about the upcoming EP Khazali writes:

My sophomore EP, The Rush, is what happened when I took four dream journal entries and turned them into a fully fledged pop universe – complete with colour, character and story. It follows a Californian couple, Tony and Lennie, and their rise and fall through love and life.

Whilst what you’ll hear is fresh AF, I’m proud to say that my EP took cues from the people I admire to help shape its overall sound. Expect to hear hints of the bands I grew up listening to; Metronomy, Little Dragon and The xx, as well as the pop I discovered relatively recently, like Dua Lipa , Arlo Parks, and Alfie Templeman.”

‘Passion Controller’ Lyrics

Simple silence
Could it ever go wrong? Sinking diamonds
In another new world

Cause I spoke it into existence
Tied a string around your resistance
And we’re making a new religion…

I’ve been down and out Send a passion controller
Time for you and I Guess we’re never to old
I’ve been down and out Send a passion controller
Time for you and I Guess we’re never to old

Pills and violence Taking all of you on
City lighting
And it’s louder than love

I’ve been down and out Send a passion controller
Time for you and I Guess we’re never to old
I’ve been down and out Send a passion controller
Time for you and I Guess we’re never to old
