Vampire Weekend in Brooklyn in 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend, who already have two excellent albums under their belt, have announced in an interview with Q Magazine that they'll release a third album this spring (via Consequence of Sound). The album was co-produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (who co-wrote Usher's "Climax," co-produced Sky Ferreira's "Everything is Embarrassing," and played bass in Foreign Born) and Vampire Weekend's Rostam Rostam Batmanglij. The band recently performed a new song, "Unbelievers," on Jimmy Kimmel Live. If you missed it, you can watch the video of that performance below.

Speaking of Week(e)nd bands with new album plans, Canadian R&B singer The Weeknd, who commercially released his three 2011 mixtapes as Trilogy in 2012, announced via Twitter that he's got a new album coming this year too. He tweeted a picture of his computer's desktop which has two folders -- one called "2013 untitled album" and another called "2013 art work." That picture is below.

I'm glad it is Friday but this is not the type of weekends I'm looking forward to!

The weeknd sucks as well as Vampire weekend. Chris Baio actually has decent dj sets though- not mixing- but decent song pick.

I couldn't really care less about another VW record, but another Discovery record, now that I could get behind.

When are people going to realize that Vampire Weekend represents the bane of modern music? Full on, completely retarded bullshit.

You should let your readers and viewers to play your Youtube playlist here in your post. I believe it's something you must publicized.
