Grizzly Bear singer and guitarist Daniel Rossen will release his debut solo EP, Silent Hour/Golden Mile, on March 20th. The album came together as a way for Rossen to figure out how to make music that resonated with him after spending significant amounts of time on tour. "When you spend so much time touring around, you can lose perspective on what you're trying to do. All the sudden, I had no idea what to do or what to make or anything," he explains. "These songs were a way for me to figure that out again, getting my legs back."

Daniel Rossen's guitar-driven "Silent Song" is available to stream exclusively on Rolling Stone.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
