The song comes ahead of Apollo's European tour kicking off in November

Omar Apollo has shared new song ‘Frío’, his first track sung entirely in Spanish – listen to it below.

“This was the first song I made fully in Spanish,” the singer said of the song in a press release.

“I was in my hometown for my brother’s wedding, and I was at the attic where I used to live with six other people and where I used to record all of my early music. I was with my bassist Manny and my homie Tony and we just started making beats like we did back in the day. I got the verse and hook and then we stopped.”

He continued: “Once I was back in LA I brought it to my homie Kenny Beats. The song is about not wanting to repeat the same cycle of emotions – but also about being stuck in that cycle too. Coming in and out of the cycle of a relationship.”

“It has to be a whole moment in time and the creative flow has to go quickly. Even if the words don’t make sense at the time, I know I have to keep going with it to complete it.”
