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

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
