Omar Apollo releases Stayback, the first single from his debut LP

He’d announced the album earlier this week.

After the announcement of his debut album earlier this week, Omar Apollo has released his brand new single, Stayback.

The single arrives with an accompanying music video, which you can see above. It’s also landed onto streaming services today.

Earlier this week Apollo took to Twitter to announce his forthcoming debut album, posting the single artwork for Stayback, which features its lyrics and its 2:38 minute runtime.

Speaking about the new single in a statement, Apollo said that it’s “a song about being in love for a long period of time. After years of being hurt emotionally, I moved on and decided to treat the relationship as a memory instead of fantasising it and trying to make it work.

“When I finished the production, I realised this was the song that I’ve been wanting to make my entire career. My guitar player Oscar killed the solo on it and really brought the whole thing together.”

The “album/project” Stayback is from is yet to receive a title or a release date.
