Ezra Koenig, June 2009
"In the stressful final weeks of finishing Contra, Ezra was anxiously walking to the studio when a complete stranger stopped him, smiled and said “You take your time, young lion.” When he met Rostam at the studio, he told him about this strange encounter. Shortly thereafter, Rostam wrote this song. It’s now the coda to MVOTC —a final message of hope."
I LOVE THIS STORY SO MUCH
