Sylvan Esso Shares ‘Rooftop Dancing’ Single


Sylvan Esso continues to preview their forthcoming Free Love studio album with the release of single “Rooftop Dancing” and its accompanying video. Free Love is due on September 25 via Loma Vista Recordings.

The band consisting of Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn headed to their studio in the woods of North Carolina to write, record and produce Free Love. Sylvan Esso previously released the 10-track LP’s lead single, “Ferris Wheel.”

Meath and Sanborn tapped Cheryl Dunn to direct and film the “Rooftop Dancing” video, which captures the scene in Dunn’s hometown of New York City. “‘Rooftop Dancing’ is about the excitement of being part of a collective humming whole – a city that contains multitudes – with your small story shining softly amidst it,” reads a note from Sylvan Esso. “Cheryl Dunn was a natural first choice to make the video since she has been so brilliantly capturing the spirit of NYC for years. We are so grateful to her for collaborating with us and giving us a beautiful slice of what the city feels like today.”
