»Jeg ved, at fem-seks år mellem album bliver betragtet som lang tid. Personligt synes jeg, det er et værdigt tempo for et band, der allerede har udgivet tre album, men alle har deres egen fornemmelse af tid«.

Frontmand Ezra Koenig har altid haft noget med ord, men nu bruger han dem endelig til at bekræfte det, som fans har ventet på i lang tid: Vampire Weekend er meget snart klar til at vende tilbage, og det bliver endda med et dobbeltalbum bestående af 18 sange med en spilletid på lige under en time.

Det afslører Koenig i en længere tekst på Instagram, hvor han også skriver, at albummets endnu hemmelige titel kan forkortes ‘FOTB’ – så er det jo bare at gætte.

Til slut skriver Koenig, at bandet vil begynde at slippe musik allerede i næste uge. Herefter følger en lind strøm af singler hver måned, indtil albummet udgives.

Vampire Weekends seneste album var det mesterlige ‘Modern Vampires of the City’ fra 2013.

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
