Tom Odell, Vampire Weekend LPs delayed

Releases

Tom Odell

Regrettably, the releases of Tom Odell and Vampire Weekend’s (not at all related) new LPs have been set back to alternative dates.

Vampire Weekend’s ‘Vampires Of The Modern City’ is postponed by seven days from its original 7 May date (aka, to 14 May) because of, say the band via Facebook, “unanticipated delays in the production of physical copies of the record”.

“We all worked very hard on this record and promise it will be worth the wait”, they swear.

Meanwhile Odell’s ‘Long Way Down’, initially meant to be available on 15 Apr, now won’t be till 24 Jun. He says it’s because “things are going so well” in America and Europe that he’d prefer to have a synched international release so that it isn’t leaked online.

“I’m really sorry to keep you waiting longer. Hope you understand it’s for the right reasons”, writes a contrite Odell, who’s compensating fans via this free demo of the ‘Long Way Down’ title track.
