Vampire Weekend are back with two new tracks, 'Harmony Hall' and '2021'

Vampire Weekend are back, with two new tracks and news of theor forthcoming fourth album.

After previewing the double drop earlier this week with a two hour guitar loop and a hint at the record name, they've now revealed both 'Harmony Hall' and '2021', as well as the title of the album they're from.

Coming in at a bumper 18 tracks, 'Father of the Bride' is scheduled for release in the ambiguously wide 'Spring' of this year. Coming six years after 2013's 'Modern Vampires of the City', it's is the first record since Rostam Batmanglij deparfted the band - though he does appear for some additional production on 'Harmony Hall'.

A press release explains: "Father of the Bride’s title is something [frontman Ezra] Koenig chose years back, well before recent significant developments in his life. In typical VW fashion, the title has multiple layers of meaning, expressing the band’s signature paradox: creating songs that easily find a home on any playlist—or car radio, TV show, film soundtrack, airport PA, etc.— but reveal their complexities upon closer listening. "

So there we go.

You can check out 'Harmony Hall' and '2021' below, and read our first impressions of the former here.
