Vampire Weekend share “This Life” & “Unbearably White”

Lollapalooza 2018 - Saturday

Vampire Weekend have shared two more songs from their anticipated first album in six years, Father of the Bride, meaning six of its 18 songs are now out. The new songs include “This Life,” which features Danielle Haim and borrows lyrics from iLoveMakonnen’s song “Tonight,” and one called “Unbearably White,” which seems to imply that Vampire Weekend have a sense of humor about common criticisms they face. Ezra Koenig further explained the title in a Stereogum interview, saying it’s about how “infighting among white people about who is marginally more or less white is not particularly interesting.”

Both songs are very catchy in that unique Vampire Weekend way, a good mix of the familiar and the new, and they’re keeping our hopes high for this album. Listen below.

The band’s tour hits NYC’s Madison Square Garden on September 6 with Angelique Kidjo and Despot (tickets).
