El líder de Vampire Weekend, Ezra Koenig, dio información importante para el nuevo disco de Vampire Weekend. Después de seis años desde su último disco Modern Vampires of the City, habiendo vuelto a Instagram, finalmente la banda de Nueva York regresó y lo mejor es que con un disco que será doble.

El álbum tiene el nombre momentáneo de FOTB, cuya salida según lo que posteó Ezra Koening, debería ser dentro de tres meses. Esto porque en ese tiempo, la banda publicará cada mes, 2 canciones nuevas, iniciando la próxima semana. Por lo que conoceremos 6 de las 18 canciones que tendrá el esperado disco de Vampire Weekend.

To the fans:⁣ I know that 5-6 years is considered a long time between records. Personally, I think it’s a dignified pace befitting a band that’s already placed three albums in stores but everyone has their own sense of time. (I swear the time between 3 & 4 felt shorter to me than 2 & 3. I may be in the minority on this one.) ⁣ ⁣ This album didn’t really take any longer to write/record than MVOTC. We just took more time on the front end to chill. I’ll admit I may have stretched out the mixing/mastering process (aka THE END) a little bit cuz spending half the day with my family & half the day at Ariel’s is my ideal life-rhythm & it’s painful to say goodbye to that rhythm.⁣ ⁣ Many of you have been hungry for information and we’ve given you very little. I don’t like talking abt a project while in the middle of making it. I usually regret everything I say cuz it turns out to be wrong (so disregard anything I may have said in the past 5 years.) I thought abt making a recording diary to tide over the people leaving intense comments but…to me, the album IS the recording diary…man.⁣ ⁣ It’s called “FOTB” (well those are the initials - that’s a VW tradition) and it’s 18 songs. Picked the name a few years ago. At some point early on, the album drifted from the Mitsubishi Macchiato aesthetic. It was a helpful guiding principle tho. Working titles are important too.⁣ ⁣ It’s a lot of songs but they all belong there. (If you disagree, you can always say it was 6 songs too long & make a lil 12-song playlist version of it.) At first, I wanted to make two 23-song albums on some human chromosome shit but then 23&me started doing Spotify playlists and I don’t know…felt we’d been scooped.⁣ ⁣ Is it a double album? The vinyl will be double so…yes? It’s about 59 minutes long. We can talk more abt that later – if u care. To me, it’s just FOTB.⁣ ⁣ Anyway, we’re gonna start releasing music next week. After all that waiting, you should have the general schedule:⁣ ⁣ -There will be three 2-song drops every month until the record is out. 1. hh/2021 2. s/bb 3. tl/uw. (plans can change that’s the plan)⁣ ⁣ Thank you for ur patience,⁣ Ezra

Koening se disculpó por la demora, argumentando que quiso pasar tiempo con su familia y que adelantar algo de esto antes le parecía innecesario. Hay que recordar también que este es el primer trabajo de la banda sin Rostam Batmanglij, quien dejó el grupo en 2016.
