Vampire Weekend has shared the final two previews of their first studio album in six years.
“This Life” and “Unbearably White” are the last of six new songs the alt-rockers from New York have released in advance of their 4th LP Father of the Bride.
“This Life” is an upbeat, melodic track on which Ezra Koenig sings about love not being what he thought it was: “Baby, I know pain is natural as the rain / I just thought it didn’t rain in California.” The song is a stark contrast to “Unbearably White,” a more subdued, minor-key track with added percussion
Vampire Weekend has also recently announced a tour starting in May. You can find the full list of dates here.
