Yes, yes, and YES! Vampire Weekend is preparing for a new LP to come out in September of this year! According to an Entertainment Weekly article, the band said: “For the last month or so, it’s just been us by ourselves in this small studio, working every day,” Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s nice after having been on tour so much to be in a slightly different situation, but it’s pretty intense. We’re really trying hard to do everything that we want to do.” They further stated that although it will still be at the core the same sound of Vampire Weekend, they are trying hard to challenge their abilities and give something new to the fans. It will be Rostam Batmanglij, who is the keyboardist for the band that will be producing the band during the recording sessions. Unfortunately, the band has not titled the CD so I can give you nothing more than the information I have already told you… but shit, get excited!
The band’s new song “White Sky.” They say that it is still in the works but previewed it anyway. SWEET!
