Daniel Rossen of Grizzly Bear reveals “Shadow In The Frame” from his debut solo album

With Grizzly Bear seemingly on indefinite hiatus, it brings us great joy to report that Daniel Rossen will be releasing his debut solo album, You Belong There, on April 8 through Warp.

While Rossen is largely limited to guitar and vocals in The Griz, for his solo album he bought an upright bass and cello, as well as some woodwinds, and performed almost all the parts on You Belong There. Grizzly Bear drummer Chris Bear does make a guest appearance on the track “Tangle”. It was written in his new desert home in Santa Fe.

The first song to be shared from the record is “Shadow In The Frame”, a quicksilver folk number that scampers along with Rossen’s rich and romantic vocal atop. Along the way, ribbons of woodwind and strings are wreathed in, while the percussion gets more technical and energetic – but never overwhelms the song. There’s an impressionistic, immersive quality to Rossen’s writing, which is enhanced by the detailed instrumentation – and “Shadow In The Frame” is an exciting entry point to his world.

Listen to “Shadow In The Frame” below or on streaming platforms.
