Helado Negro Releases Video for New Song ‘Ya No Estoy Aquí’

    Helado Negro has released a new single called ‘Ya No Estoy Aquí’, his first new music since 2021’s Far In. Check out the self-directed video for it below.

    “‘Ya No Estoy Aquí’ is a song about loneliness and alienation,” Roberto Carlos Lange explained in a press release. “It’s about being lost within yourself and not knowing who you are. Making this song was catharsis; it was a way to get this all out and feel the texture of new perspectives.”

    The track was inspired by the independent film Ya No Estoy Aquí. “This movie moved me in ways that nothing else has moved in a long time,” Lange continued. “It is about a young man from Monterrey, Mexico, who gets into trouble and is forced to leave for his safety to New York. The language barrier, the cultural isolation, and his characteristics spiral him more towards his loneliness and isolation. Music was his only solace. Songs that he would dance to by himself and disappear into the memory of being somewhere else with the people he missed and loved.”
