Lil Nas X is back with his first new song of 2021. ‘Montero (Call Me by Your Name)’ was produced by Take a DayTrip, Omer Fedi, and Roy Enzo and arrives with an accompanying video filled with biblical references and allusions to Greek mythology. Watch the clip, directed by LNX with Tanu Muino, and check out the single artwork below.
In a statement addressed to his 14-year-old self, Lil Nas X wrote:
Dear 14-year-old Montero, I wrote a song with our name in it. It’s about a guy I met last summer. I know we promised to never come out publicly, I know we promised to never be “that” type of gay person, I know we promised to die with the secret, but this will open doors for many other queer people to simply exist. You see this is very scary for me, people will be angry, they will say I’m pushing an agenda. But the truth is, I am. The agenda to make people stay the fuck out of other people’s lives and stop dictating who they should be. Sending you love from the future.
‘Montero (Call Me by Your Name)’ follows last year’s ‘HOLIDAY’.
