Vampire Weekend premiere new tracks


Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend have shared the third and fourth tracks featuring on their new LP, ‘Modern Vampires Of The City’.

Titled ‘Step’ and ‘Diane Young’, the “wildly different” singles (the former based on a sample of rap troupe Souls Of Mischief’s ‘Step To My Girl’, the latter some upbeat 80s-style world-pop) will be buyable as a special seven-inch, screen-printed by hand at the London base of the band’s label XL Recordings.

Alternatively, ‘Diane Young’ is instantly available in digital form to all parties pre-paying for ‘Modern Vampires…’, which is released on 6 May.
