Omar Apollo unveils new single ‘3 Boys’

It’s his first new music since the release of his debut album ‘Ivory’.

Following the release of his debut album ‘Ivory’ last year, Omar Apollo is back with new single ‘3 Boys’. “When I first started writing songs I would often write about unrequited love,” Omar says. “Eventually I wrote songs about the complexities that come with a relationship. ‘3 Boys’ was my first time writing about something non-monogamous. Having more than one person to talk to. I wrote the song on a rainy day in London. I spent most of December there, mostly just because I wanted to get out of America. I ended up going to the studio more than I thought I would. I wrote the song with a friend of mine, Dylan Wiggins. It seemed like we were both in the same mind state for a song like this. The song wrote itself really quickly. I also had my friend Mustafa help me with a few lines after I played it for him.” In our review of Omar’s debut ‘Ivory’, we said, “Conflating his electro-pop tendencies with the occasional stride of a campfire guitar, he turns everything he touches to glistening radio gold.” Revisit our full review of ‘Ivory’ here, and have a listen to new track ‘3 Boys’ below.
