Omar Apollo Covers the Mamas & the Papas’ ‘California Dreamin’’

    Omar Apollo has released a new Spotify Singles session, which features a rework of his latest single ‘Go Away’, as well as an acoustic cover of ‘California Dreamin” by The Mamas & The Papas. Both tracks were recorded at East West Studios in Los Angeles, which is where the original ‘California Dreamin” was recorded. Take a listen below.

    “I chose that song because I heard it in Chungking Express by Wong Kar-Wai,” Apollo explained in a statement. “They played it so many times in the movie that I became obsessed with it. I definitely felt like it was a time machine being at East West [Studios]—it’s cool to know the history behind the song when recording my version.
