Global rising singer and songwriter Omar Apollo releases new single ‘Killing Me’ from his upcoming debut album ‘Ivory’
The new track debuted with a television performance last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and marks the fourth single from the album closely following “Invincible” featuring Daniel Caesar which arrived with a video directed by STILLZ, and his previously released singles “Bad Life” with Kali Uchis and “Go Away.”
The Desvelado Tour features support from Deb Never and begins on April 5th in Portland and wraps up in London on June 16th. The tour will be an exciting return to the stage for the artist whom GQ called “one of the most electric live performers of his generation.”
As unique as his sound is, Apollo has garnered as much attention for his lyrics—themes of romantic yearning and self-improvement swirled up with expressions of cultural heritage and identity. In 2020, he released his home-recorded project Apolonio which featured collaborations with Bootsy Collins, DJ Dahi, Albert Hammond, Jr., and more. To celebrate Apolonio’s release, Apollo performed a livestream concert from Paisley Park, the legendary residence of one of his heroes, Prince. 2021 saw the release of two singles, “Go Away,” which Apollo performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and “Bad Life” featuring Kali Uchis.
Apollo closed out the year on a high note receiving his first Latin GRAMMY nomination for his collaboration “Te Olvidaste“ with C Tangana. Apollo’s long-awaited debut album IVORY brings him to another level in his career. Crossing genre lines as well as language barriers, the full-length showcases even greater musical diversity from the alreadyboundless creator. Upon the release of his new single “Invincible” featuring Daniel Caesar, Apollo announced that IVORY will arrive on April 8th, 2022. Despite being at this pivotal moment in his career, Omar feels like he’s just getting started. The artist who once called himself “just a kid from Indiana” is breaking new ground, abandoning all comfort zones, and never looking back.
