Rostam Unveils Star-Studded Video For New Track From The Back Of A Cab

Wednesday, 05 May 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Rostam has shared a new track.

From The Back Of A Cab serves as the latest preview of the former Vampire Weekend member's upcoming sophomore album, 'Changephobia', due out on June 4 via his own label Matsor Projects (via Secretly Distribution).

The alt-pop offering rolls out over shuffling percussion and a lilting keyboard melody. He said: "From The Back Of A Cab is probably my favorite song that I've written. It started with the 12/8 drums — something you find in Persian music and African music. I built the song around those drums over time, writing the piano part in my living room, the melodies and lyrics on foot walking in New York and Tokyo, on California's highways, and on the flights and car trips between all those places."

Head below to view the song's accompanying video, which was co-directed by Jason Lester and Rostam, and produced by Laura Burhenn. See if you can spot the guest appearances from Haim, Charli XCX, Kaia Gerber, Seth Bogart, Remi Wolf, Bryce Willard Smithe, Samantha Urbani, Wallows, Ariel Rechtshaid and Nick Robinson.

It's the fifth cut lifted from the record, following the previously unveiled title track, 4RunnerThese Kids We Knew, and Unfold You. Rostam's solo debut, 'Half-Light', was released in 2017.
