Collaborations don’t come much bigger than PNAU and Khalid’s heavyweight meet-up for their brand new single ‘The Hard Way’. The two artists share a combined total of over 70 million monthly listeners at Spotify, with a host of international #1 smashes to their credit, with their biggest moments including PNAU’s unmissable Elton John / Dua Lipa collab ‘Cold Heart’ and Khalid’s ‘lovely’ alongside Billie Eilish.

‘The Hard Way’ instantly lives up to its billing. It’s big scale contemporary pop at its finest, with PNAU’s sublime synthpop providing the towering melodies and supremely confident hook that allows Khalid’s starry vocal majesty to shine. The two artists really lean into each other’s vibe to establish a depth of feeling, with Khalid’s lovelorn lyricism and sentimental emotions complemented by PNAU’s ability to evoke nostalgic ‘80s sonic elements within a modernistic production.

PNAU’s Nick Littlemore says, “We are so very excited to share this with you. Working with Khalid has been an absolute dream, we hope this song shall live in your hearts like it does ours. Big love, PNAU.“

Khalid adds, “It’s just awesome, it’s feel-good but then the lyrics have that melancholy, bittersweet thing about them. It’s that juxtaposition, that the lyrics are heartbreakingly sad but if you listen to the song you can’t help but smile. Those are my favourite songs, the ones that contradict. Just waiting for the world to hear it, they’re going to attach to it and just love it..”
