Rostam unveils new single 'These Kids We Knew'

Following on from the brilliant single 'Unfold You' near the end of last year, Rostam is back once again to share another sweeping new release.

The new track 'These Kids We Knew' marks his first piece of new material of 2021, and sets the stage for more new music over the coming months.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “I was thinking of three generations while I was writing this song. There’s a generation of adults who don’t see global warming as their problem because they think they won’t be impacted by it. Then there’s a generation younger than mine, who will certainly have to deal with what is happening. In the song I have a fantasy of the younger generation arresting the adults and putting them on trial in the streets of cities around the world. Those are the ‘sidewalk courts’ that I sing about in the song.

“The song was written in a fever-dream state during the second week of March last year while I was recovering from Covid-19.”
