Clairo Is A Pop Star In The Making On Her New Rostam-Produced Single ‘Closer To You’

High Rise PR

Clairo is on her way to becoming a serious pop star, and on her journey to the top, she’s surrounded herself by great company. She’s currently supporting Khalid on his North American tour, which just kicked off a few days ago. She also co-produced her upcoming album Immunity with Rostam Batmanglij, and now she has shared the latest fruit of their collaborative labor: “Closer To You.”

The single kicks off with a hip-hop-style beat and vocoded vocals from Clairo, and for the most part, it stays in that wheelhouse. It’s the kind of chilled-out track that earlybird Khalid fans are probably really enjoying on tour, and evidence that Clairo is in the midst of an ascent.

Clairo wrote of the song in a pair of tweets, “‘closer to you’ is one of the most important songs @matsoR and i have made together- it’s extremely different than ‘bags’ but the story telling and emotion is all the same. something i learned through this album process was how to translate what i’m saying into the actual production, how to make the instrumental/effects talk back to you – i think this song is a good example of that exploration & i hope you enjoy.”
