As The Swollen Fox shared earlier this morning, Vampire Weekend have shared a lyric video for another new song off of their upcoming Modern Vampires of the City LP. In the video, the lyrics of “Ya Hey” appear over scenes of seemingly ritualistic champagne-popping. Vampire Weekend will release the new album on May 14th, followed by an appearance at the Firefly Festival in Delaware on June 21-23. Tickets and information can be found here. Watch the video for “Ya Hey” below.
Appearing in support of their respective new albums, Vampire Weekend (pictured) and Yeah Yeah Yeahs performed on Later… with Jools Holland recently. Vampire Weekend highlighted their new Modern Vampires of the City LP with “Diane Young” and “Unbelievers,” while Yeah Yeah Yeahs sang the lead single from Mosquito called “Sacrilege.” Both bands will be at Firefly Festival this summer, happening in Dover, DE on June 21-23.
