Lil Nas X has been teasing a Call Me By Your Name-referencing single for months now, first giving us a brief, Rihanna-approved snippet back in July 2020 (listen below). Now, he’s finally shared the release date for the much-anticipated track, alongside new visuals posted to Twitter.
According to the new post, “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” is set to arrive this month, on March 26. The accompanying artwork shows a take on Michelangelo’s fresco “The Creation of Adam”, featuring two nude illustrations of the “Old Town Road” rapper (tastefully covered by fluffy clouds and greenery).
Lil Nas X has previously built hype for the track in an advert aired during the Super Bowl, as well as another photo set posted to social media last month.
Earlier this year, he also announced that he had a song in the works with Miley Cyrus prior to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, adding that there’s still a chance it will see the light of day in the future. That is, if he doesn’t go too far with the Hannah Montana parodies.
