Friends finds Apollo blending elements of jazz, R&B, funk, alternative, soul and pop. The EP includes the musician’s previously released tracks in “Friends,” “Ashamed” and “Trouble,” in addition to previously-unheard cuts.

You can stream Omar Apollo’s Friends EP underneath.

Apollo embarked on his stateside tour at SXSW’s FADER Fort last month. Due to illness, the burgeoning artist was forced to cancel a few shows, but he will be back on the road on April 18 as he takes his talents to Florida. Apollo is scheduled to play 32 dates across the continent before making his way to Europe for a string of shows.
