Boy Pablo has dropped some new tracks, including double single, “honey” and b-side “jd’s song”, the second release off his debut album Wachito Rico, due out on October 23, via 777 Music. The artistic project of the 21-year-old singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Nicolas Muñoz, Boy Pablo first came to widespread attention with the video for his viral 2017 single, “Everytime”, an offbeat, lo-fi video, featuring Boy Pablo and his band of close-knit friends playing on the shores of their hometown.
Boy Pablo on “honey”:
“I started writing Honey last year when I was just messing around on my guitar. The hook came to me first and I made a demo based off of that. The track is about how a relationship moves between the bad and the good times, but even through the bad times the mutual love you’ve built and the fascination you have for each other never fades away, and you choose to stick together through it all. I want to say thank you to Esteban Munoz and Erik Thorsheim who helped me both write and produce this track.”
The B-side song “jd’s song” is a track that Pablo co-wrote with his good friend and 777 Music label mate JD Stenersen. It’s been a fan favorite of his live sets and finally gets an official release alongside “honey”.
Boy Pablo on “jd’s song”:
“JD’s song is an old song. A friend of mine, Jan David Stenersen, made this song with my brother-in-law Erik Thorsheim many years ago, but JD was never happy with his lyrics or melody he wrote on it. JD said he didn’t want to do anything more with the song. 5 or 6 years later I rearranged it, wrote down some meaningless lyrics, made a melody and recorded it. I felt the instrumental was too good to just go to waste. It’s about food. I hope you like it.”

Of the double single, Boy Pablo shares that both tracks “were made during a time I wrote a lot of music for a song project with a friend of mine, Judah Kubendran. I rearranged the tracks and rewrote the lyrics and melodies, and quickly realized that they were too good not to be released.
