Rostam has returned with his first new solo single in two years, ‘Unfold You’.
It’s the first offering from the former Vampire Weekend man since 2018’s ‘In A River’, and comes alongside a self-directed video starring actor-slash-model Hari Nef.
Rostam explains: “Hari and I found ourselves in the same quarantine pod in Massachusetts this past July. We also found we had a bunch in common, having gone to the same college nine years apart.”
Talking about the track, he continues: “Even though Haim’s “Summer Girl” came out within a few months of us starting to record it, “Unfold You” took years. In some ways it had to – because the recording of the song tracks an evolution and a personal metamorphosis. As I write this, I’m finishing a record that deals intrinsically with the subject of change and change was what I was feeling personally and searching for musically.”
Rostam adds, “In the summer of 2016, I was sitting on a park bench on Commercial Street in Provincetown, Massachusetts. I found myself in conversation with a stranger who left me with a piece of advice that has stuck with me. “Change is good”, he said, “Go with it”.”
