Los Retros shares a new single “Solo Tú” and an accompanying video. The standalone single is inspired by classic Spanish love songs, and is Los Retros’ first Spanish-language track to be released. The song is dedicated to Mauri’s wife and mother of their newborn child, and arrives ahead of Los Retros joining Chicano Batman on their North American tour this Fall.

Speaking on the song, Mauri says: “‘Solo Tú’ is a message to my wife about how she is the only one I long for, regardless of the circumstances. The instrumental itself was heavily inspired by many bands who made Romanticas in the 70’s. I wanted to make a Romantica that sounded like it could have been on one of my father’s CDs from the swapmeet.”

The cinematic visual features Los Retros traveling through open landscapes on several modes of transportation, delivering a heartfelt performance. Director Ross Harris says, “Mauri landed that skate trick on the first try. We bought the inflatable backpack kayak just so Mauri could stand in that exact spot in the river. Mauri called me and asked if he needed to wear the same outfit for the entire video. I told him no. He pulled up 15 minutes later in a medieval tunic and a Samurai topknot.”
