Vampire Weekend Reveal They’re About to Start Work on a New Album
In a recent interview, Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig revealed that the band is "definitely gearing up to start working on another album." The new album, which is far away from a release date at this time, would serve as the band's fourth overall studio album and the follow-up to 2013's Modern Vampires of the City.
Although Koenig revealed this exciting news during a podcast with No Effects, the singer-songwriter also stated, "We’re not in a zone of like getting in there everyday or anything. There have been discussions, of course there’s ... in some ways, you know, we’re always working."
He also commented on unused material that could appear on an upcoming record, stating, "There are songs that are left over, not to diminish them, but songs that just weren’t quite right for the last album that I’m very excited about for the next album, so you know there’s little demos that I kind of listen to everyday."
While the indie scene will obviously wait with intense anticipation, Koenig does not seem to be in much of a rush at all. Listen to the podcast for yourself here.
In the meantime, Vampire Weekend's bass player, Chris Baio, recently announced his debut solo album due out this summer via Glassnote. He previously released two solo EPs, Sunburn (2012) and Mira (2013).
