Vampire Weekend new album in 2017?
I've been hearing rumors that Vampire Weekend will be releasing a new record in 2017 as they've inked a deal with Columbia Records recently. Lead singer Ezra Koenig gave an update to Pitchfork in regards to this, saying the album is tentatively titled Mitsubishi Macchiato. This would be the band's fourth album and first without Rostam Batmanglij, who has done fantastic work with Hamilton + Rostam, I just love the song, "A 1000 Times". Vampire Weekend are anticipated to follow up on the success of their first three albums, with the release of Mitsubishi Macchiato later this year. I can't wait to hear anything new from VW, I just love this band and the eclectic sounds each of their previous releases have provided. In the meantime, watch Vampire Weekend perform "Unbelievers" on SNL back in 2013.
