I bid you a Happy Friday with some joyous news: New music from Vampire Weekend is here! 2018 marked the 10th-anniversary of the eponymous debut of this unique indie-rock band out of New York City, but we haven't heard any new music since their 2013 release "Modern Vampires Of The City."
When Rostam Batmanglij officially left the band in January 2016, it was wondered what the future held for them, but lead-singer and founding-member Ezra Koenig quickly announced that a fourth album was in-the-works. Three years later we are on the verge of finally hearing that record!
The new album's working-title over the past couple-years has been, "Mitsubishi Macchiato," but yesterday Vampire Weekend announced their fourth LP will be an 18-track double album entitled, "Father Of The Bride!" If that wasn't enough good news, Rostam is back co-producing a few of the tracks and they also released two new songs from the album!
Clocking-in at 5:09, "Harmony Hall" is a little out-of-the-norm for this punk-pop-world-beat outfit that excelled at crafting 2:00 to 3:00-ish indie-pop gems, but trust me when I tell you this new song is wonderful! Have a listen for yourself, as it's just been added to the Knock Knock: New Music playlist. Happy listening! -Kristen
