Vampire Weekend Continue To Tease 'Father Of The Bride' With New Songs Sunflower And Big Blue

Jon Stickler 06 March 2019

Photo: Vampire Weekend Facebook Vampire Weekend have rolled out two more tracks from their upcoming fourth studio LP, 'Father of the Bride'.

The cheery Sunflower features Steve Lacy of the Internet and is described by Ezra Koenig as "the sibling song" of Flower Moon, a track they previewed live last summer, while Big Blue is a more subdued, soothing track interspersed with slide guitar.

The second pair of singles follow Harmony Hall and 2021 in previewing the record, which the New York band have confirmed will arrive on May 3 via Columbia Records. They've also shared its cover art, viewable along with the two new songs below. The tracklist is still to be unveiled but we know it's an 18-song double album.

The band embark on a North American tour this summer. They'll also return to Dublin on July 1 as part of the Trinity College summer series.
