Omar Apollo’s latest EP, Live For Me, is available for purchase, and each copy includes an explicit photo.
Queer artist Omar Apollo’s EP, Live For Me, dropped on October 6 alongside a music video for the title track. Leading up to the release, the 26-year-old teased his fans online by sharing a sneak peek of the album’s artwork.
Created by LGBTQ+ artist Doron Langberg, the cover paints Apollo lying down with his hand over his chest. However, it’s the back of the vinyl that really has fans buzzing.
Ironically, the rear side is actually a display of the front, featuring Apollo’s thighs and a prominently pixelated image in between.
“Live For Me Vinyl on sale tomorrow 8:30am pst! uncensored back cover portrait available with purchase,” he wrote alongside an eggplant and secret emoji.
Can I Get a Drink of Water?
Now, Apollo is not shy about thirst-trapping his fans, but nothing could have prepared them for a nude vinyl. Check out some of their thirsty reactions below.
The EP is available now and features four new tracks, “Ice Slippin,” “Live For Me,” “Angel,” and “Pilot.” According to the artist, his song “Ice Slippin'” is about him almost getting into a car accident on an icy road after coming out to his parents.
Omar Apollo Comes Out
In an interview with NPR, the “Evergreen” singer said he used to try to be mysterious, but now he publicly identifies as “very gay.”
“I don’t really care. I feel like in the beginning, I was trying to be mysterious and stuff, but now I’m just like — I’m very gay, so I’m just like, whatever. It’s funny, every time I’m doing an interview, they’re like, ‘You don’t like to…’ I’m like, ‘D***, do I really come off like that?’ But no, I’m totally about it. Maybe I was trying to keep the mystique, you understand? But I don’t even care anymore.”
