Rostam has returned with his first new solo single in two years, 'Unfold You'

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"."
