We finally have a date for the new Vampire Weekend album, Father of the Bride, and it’s a lot sooner than expected. The follow-up to 2013’s Vampires in the City is set to be released May 3rd. The band added to the big news by dropping two new singles “Big Blue” and “Sunflower” featuring The Internet’s Steve Lacy.
The highly anticipated Father of the Bride is reported to be a double LP with a total of 18 songs, including the effervescent “Harmony Hall” and “2021”, both released last month with a promise to continue to drop two songs a month until the album itself is released.
Vampire Weekend will play the Bill Graham Civic on October 1st as part of their world tour in support of the album.
Check out the two new songs below.
