A Science Question

I think all of you have read about how refrigerators work. So maybe this is a very simple question that I am going to ask. We know that there are two halves in the system. In the compressor the gas is compressed and it releases heat. Now this is my question: why compressing the gas makes it release heat? The gas had an initial temperature , but after getting compressed , it gets much hotter;why?
