OMAR APOLLO (2024)

Handsome Tours, Astral People, Laneway Presents and triple j are pleased to present the return of Omar Apollo!

Two years on from the release of his debut album ‘Ivory’, Omar Apollo has returned with a slinky and addictive new offering in ‘Spite’, which – according to Omar himself – is “a song about a long-distance relationship and wanting to reassure the other person that you’re okay.” After recently heading to socials to tease “LP2”, it seems there’s new music on the horizon.

Traversing the bounds of genre and language in his songs, Omar Apollo captures the adventurous spirit that this multi-hyphenate moment in pop demands. The singer-songwriter’s fluid musical flair, coupled with his soul-baring balladry, has garnered him a number of industry accolades: including a GRAMMY nomination for Best New Artist, two Latin GRAMMY nominations for Record of the Year and Best Alternative Song (“Te Olvidaste,” with C. Tangana).

With the release of Ivory, Apollo’s eclectic 2022 debut, his hit single “Evergreen (You Didn’t Deserve Me at All)” was certified platinum, and became his first showing on the Billboard Hot 100. Released independently and written in Spanglish, his 2018 EP Stereo, followed by 2019’s Friends, scored him a deal with Warner Records in 2019. The deal yielded two more projects: 2020’s Apolonio and 2023’s Live for Me. Blending techniques he learned from R&B, indie rock and Latin music, Apollo continued to flex his versatility in sensational live performances, including on Good Morning America, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, NPR’s Tiny Desk series and Coachella.

Omar Apollo is a true visionary, whose one-of-a-kind pop synthesis unites listeners from all walks of life in a shared passion for rhythm and soul. His Australian debut in early 2020 feels like a lifetime ago, and for Apollo, it practically is. The bedroom pop artist is now touring the world, captivating audiences everywhere. Omar Apollo is more than ready to give Australia his all this winter.
