Rostam Releases New Song ‘These Kids We Knew’

    Rostam has released a new song called ‘These Kids We Knew’. In a statement, Rostam explained that he wrote the song while “in a fever-dream state during the second week of March last year while [he] was recovering from COVID-19.” Check it out below.

    “I was thinking of three generations while I was writing this song,” Rostam wrote of ‘These Kids We Knew’. “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.”

    ‘These Kids We Knew’ follows Rostam’s October single ‘Unfold You’. His debut solo album, Half-Light, came out in 2017.
