Vampire Weekend topped the charts in 2013 with the release of their third LP, ‘Modern Vampires of the City.’ Just when we thought the guys would chill during the holiday season, they decided to end the year with a bang and drop a new remix of the tune ‘Step’ featuring rapper Danny Brown, as well as Heems and Despot, formerly of Das Racist.

Vampire Weekend announced the release to their fans via Twitter on New Year’s Eve.

Over a melody and beat unchanged from the original, each of the rappers throw down rhymes flawlessly, giving ‘Step’ an interesting facelift. They take turns on the mic, and after their verses, Vampire Weekend singer Ezra Koenig returns for the chorus.

Not only do fans have the chance to listen to it, but the band were nice enough to give it away as a free download. Not a bad way to kick off your 2014 winter playlist.
