Vampire Weekend mister medlem – arbejder på nyt album

Vampire Weekend mister medlem – arbejder på nyt album
Rostam Batmanglij er nummer to fra venstre.

Der er gode og dårlige nyheder fra Vampire Weekend-lejren.

Vi starter med den dårlige: Rostam Batmanglij (keys/guitar) har meddelt sit exit fra bandet – dog med døren åben for et samarbejde med bandet på fremtidige projekter.

Den gode nyhed er til gengæld, at Vampire Weekend skulle være i fuld gang med at indspille et nye album.

I forbindelse med Batmanglijs afgang postede forsanger Ezra Koenig nedenstående på Instagram:
»For now in the Vampire Weekend universe, it’s all about recording the next album. There will be a lot of familiar faces in the studio but also some fresh, new ones. Working title is “Mitsubishi Macchiato”…for obvious reasons. Shout-out to the fans who have been waiting for new music – it’s coming«.

Hvornår albummet med den – forhåbentligt foreløbige – arbejdstitel lander er endnu uvist. Vampire Weekend var sidst albumaktuelle med det roste ‘Modern Vampires of the City’ fra 2013.

A couple years ago, Rostam and I sat down at his house & talked abt whether our collaboration was dependent on being members of the same band. We both firmly agreed that nope, it was not. In fact, we agreed that our collaboration was more important. I’m psyched about the work we’ve already begun for LP4 and I’m psyched to hear anything else Rostam is a part of. Also very excited to continue playing music with CT and Baio but there will be plenty of time to talk about that later in the year. For now in the Vampire Weekend universe, it’s all about recording the next album. There will be a lot of familiar faces in the studio but also some fresh, new ones. Working title is “Mitsubishi Macchiato”…for obvious reasons. Shout-out to the fans who have been waiting for new music – it’s coming. Also tomorrow, we gotta talk abt Iowa.
