Vampire Weekend Modern Vampires Of The City

Vampire Weekend are streaming their new album, Modern Vampires of the City, a full week ahead of its release date (May 14th via XL Recordings). Take a listen at the iTunes Store.

Produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (Usher, Major Lazer, Charli XCX) and the band’s own Rostam Batmanglij, the follow-up to 2010’s Contra was recorded in both New York City and Los Angeles.

In a past interview with Q Magazine, frontman Ezra Koenig called their latest effort “dark”, “organic”, and that it “really does feel like the third chapter in a book.” He added: “We created some characters on the first record, some of which are real people, some of which are ourselves, so it’s not so hard to keep following them and see what their concerns are now and how their lives have changed.”

Pre-orders are ongoing.
