Vampire Weekend founding member Rostam has launched “From the Again of a Cab,” a brand new single that comes with a video that includes collaborators and pals HAIM, Charli XCX, Kaia Gerber, Seth Bogart, Remi Wolf, Bryce Willard Smithe, Samantha Urbani, Wallows, Ariel Rechtshaid and Nick Robinson.
The tune is off Rostam’s upcoming album Changephobia, out June 4 on Matsor Tasks/Secretly Distribution.
He shared his ideas concerning the tune by way of a press launch:
From the Again of a Cab” might be my favourite tune that I’ve written. It began with the 12/8 drums — one thing you discover in Persian music and African music. I constructed the tune round these drums over time, writing the piano half in my lounge, the melodies and lyrics on foot strolling in New York and Tokyo, on California’s highways, and on the flights and automobile journeys between all these locations.
The clip, co-directed by Jason Lester and Rostam, might be seen under.
Changephobia was first introduced in March together with the primary minimize, “4Runner.”
The tune “Unfold You” got here out in October 2020, marking Rostam’s first new music in two years.
