With his highly-anticipated new solo album ‘Changephobia’ arriving on 4th June, Rostam is now sharing the title track to get us all hyped for what’s to come.
“‘Changephobia’ was one of the last songs I finished writing for this album,” he says. “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.”
