Omar Apollo has shared a new single for 2023.
Titled ‘3 Boys’, the track sees Omar exploring the complexities of non-monogamy.
“When I first started writing songs I would often write about unrequited love,” Apollo said in a statement. “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.”
The singer-songwriter wrote the track while in London in December, with Dylan Wiggins and Mustafa, who also had a hand in crafting it.
“I wrote the song on a rainy day in London,” he continues. “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.”
The new single follows Apollo’s nomination for Best New Artist at the 2023 Grammy Awards, and the release of his debut studio album, ‘Ivory’, back in April 2022.
