Rostam (formerly of Vampire Weekend) has shared the title track from his upcoming album Changephobia, which is due out June 4 via Matsor Projects (via Secretly Distribution). Listen below.

In a press release, Rostam talks about the process of creating the song, stating: “‘Changephobia’ was one of the last songs I finished writing for this album. The chorus came to me sitting at the piano in my living room; I spent weeks picking up and putting down ideas for the verses. One day I sat down with an acoustic guitar, feeling close to giving up on the song altogether: all of a sudden a new melody, a new feeling, and new words came out of me and I felt like I could be honest with myself about what I wanted to say. The song ‘Changephobia’ is partly about something we can all be guilty of, avoiding our own feelings. I think of it as a reminder not to.”

Previously shared songs from the upcoming album are “Unfold You” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), “These Kids We Knew,” and “4Runner.” Rostam’s debut solo album, Half-Light, was released in 2017 via Nonesuch.
