Helado Negro (Miami-born, New York-based artist Roberto Carlos Lange) has shared a new song, “Ya No Estoy Aquí,” via a self-directed video for the single. It follows his 2021 album, Far In, released last October via 4AD. Watch and listen below, followed by Helado Negro’s upcoming tour dates.

“‘Ya No Estoy Aquí’ is a song about loneliness and alienation,” Lange says 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 2019-released independent film Ya No Estoy Aquí inspired the song’s title. “This movie moved me in ways that nothing else has moved in a long time,” Lange explains. “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.”

Far In came out in October via 4AD. In addition to “There Must Be a Song Like You,” it also featured the songs “Gemini and Leo,” which was one of our Songs of the Week, “Outside the Outside,” also one of our Songs of the Week, and “La Naranja.” Then he shared a live video for “There Must Be a Song Like You” and a video for the album’s “Hometown Dream.”
