Following his dazzling debut, Ivory, and single “3 Boys,” Apollo promoted the project’s new single with ice sculptures of himself in London, New York, and Los Angeles. The single’s artwork is a self-portrait of Apollo by Doron Langberg, a celebrated figurative painter known for his artistic psychological approach to queer intimacy and sexuality topics.

“‘Ice Slippin’ is about reliving the thoughts I had passing through my mind the winter I came out to my family. Receiving cold judgment as opposed to the acceptance I felt I deserved.” He said in a press release. “This song is a reflection and reaction of all the emotions I had to face before and after I decided to leave the icy streets of Indiana.”

Compared to Ivory, Apollo’s songwriting sees maturity and depth in “Ice Slippin.” In the press release, he said that his forthcoming EP, Live For Me, contains songs that he holds “very close” to himself.

The “Evergreen” singer will perform at Las Vegas’ Life is Beautiful Festival on September 23, then co-headline New York City’s Madison Square Garden alongside Daniel Caesar on October 17.
