Norweigan singer/songwriter Nicolas Muñoz, otherwise known by the stage name Boy Pablo, has announced his debut album, Wachito Rico, out on October 23 via 777 Music. It’s the follow-up to Boy Pablo’s 2018 EP, Soy Pablo.
Accompanying the announcement is the release of a new single, “hey girl,” a saccharine love song peddling in the artist’s characteristically vibrant bedroom pop production. The single also includes the b-side “I just wanna go home,” which features vocals from Muñoz high school classmate, Andrea.
“The lyrics of ‘hey girl’ are written from the point of view of a young boy who is in love for the first time and wants to make a move on this girl,” Muñoz says. “He’s nervous, shy and shaky, but dares to jump into it and talks to the girl.”
