Back in January 2016, Rostam Batmanglij announced his shock departure from art-rock band, Vampire Weekend, in order to work on solo material. 18 months later and just a week away from the release of his highly anticipated debut solo project, Rostam has shared the record’s title track, Half-Light.

An elegant, piano-driven ballad, Half-Light finds Batmanglij in a tender mood, as he reflects on the lasting impact that even a fleeting relationship can have. The track also features a guest turn from Wet’s Kelly Zutrau, who closes the track with a short verse delivered with her trademark delicacy. It’s lovely listening.
