Omar Apollo has announced his upcoming debut album, ‘Ivory’.
The 16-track album is slated to release on April 8 via Warner Records. While the tracklist for ‘Ivory’ has not yet been revealed, it has been confirmed that the record will include previously released singles ‘Go Away’ and ‘Bad Life’ featuring Kali Uchis.
The album will also include the newly released ‘Invincible’ featuring fellow singer-songwriter Daniel Caesar, which received a music video. In it, shots of the duo performing the track are intercut with scenes of a masked couple dealing with relationship struggles, grappling with each other before making up.
Watch the music video for ‘Invincible’ below.
Apollo first released ‘Go Away’ in July 2021, followed by ‘Bad Life’ with Kali Uchis in November. The latter track marked the second time that Uchis and Apollo have collaborated together, following ‘Hey Boy’ from Apollo’s 2020 project, ‘Apolonio’.
‘Apolonio’ garnered a four-star rating from NME’s Rhian Daly, who commented that the record “aches with unrequited feelings but, musically, sets the young star up as the new master of steamy bedroom jams”.
Besides the album announcement and music video for ‘Invincible’, Omar Apollo has also announced the Desvelado tour, which kicks off in the United States in April. It will take him to Europe for three shows in June, ending at KOKO in London.
