Vampire Weekend Share New Tracks This Life And Unbearably White

Thursday, 04 April 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Vampire Weekend have shared another two tracks from 'Father Of The Bride'.

The upbeat This Life boasts guest vocals from Danielle Haim and additional guitar from Jake Longstreth, who co-hosts frontman Ezra Koenig's Beats 1 radio show.

Unbearably White, meanwhile, is a slower, more pensive number produced by Ariel Rechtshaid and Koenig, with additional production by BloodPop.

The songs serve as the final pair of tracks to be rolled out ahead of the release of the New York band's fourth full-length, which is set to land on May 3 via Columbia Records. They've previously shared Harmony Hall2021Sunflower, and Big Blue.

The band will bring their Father Of The Bride Tour to Europe in November, with UK stops planned in Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham, and London, where they'll take over Alexandra Palace. The tour gets underway in North America this summer.

Wed 03 Jul 2019
Photo: XL Recordings In the ‘90s and ‘00s, Radiohead were probably the world’s best rock band. Capable of generation-defining stadium bangers alongside heavily experimental sound happenings, the Oxford natives managed to maintain a stunning degree of creative integrity at a time when their contemporaries were falling over each other to sell out. ‘Anima’ is Thom Yorke’s third solo album, and it’s easily his most accomplished to date. Arguably, it’s his best work since Radiohead’s ‘In Rainbows’.
