Early life edit
Department of Eagles released their second record In Ear Park in October 2008. The album featured fellow Grizzly Bear bandmates Chris Taylor and Christopher Bear of Grizzly Bear, with Taylor co-producing. The album was dedicated to Rossen's late father, with whom Rossen shared memories of going to the titular park.
In 2012, Rossen released a solo EP, Silent Hour/Golden Mile. Rossen would embark on a belated tour for the EP in 2014 due to commitments to Grizzly Bear's fourth album, Shields, released the same year as the EP. Rossen released the 12" single Deerslayer for Record Store Day 2018, though the song has been in circulation since his 2014 solo tour, and was quietly released in 2017 via his website.
In 2019, Rossen would tease songs for a potential debut solo album on his Instagram page. Again in 2021, Rossen continued to tease work on the album through Instagram, with Christopher Bear confirming his involvement via his own Instagram.
Rossen in 2020 performed an untitled song for Vote Ready, a livestream concert, which featured music from Bear, though also in a solo performance. Rossen appeared on the fourth Fleet Foxes album, Shore, contributing to its penultimate track, once again with Bear who contributed drums and percussion to all but five tracks of the album.
On January 20, 2022, Rossen announced his debut solo album You Belong There, released on April 8, 2022, supported by a solo tour of North America and Europe. Rossen and Bear also composed the music for the 2023 film Past Lives.
