Vampire Weekend – Diane Young & Step

Fresh from their performance at SXSW last week, Vampire Weekend have decided to let loose two brand new songs today from their upcoming album Modern Vampires of the City. The first, which they premiered at SXSW, is the highly energetic Diane Young and it’s an absolute fucking diamond of a track! The second song, Step, is a stripped down and rather lovely ballad showcasing the bands maturing sound with some lovely lyrics like “wisdom’s a gift but you’d trade it for youth, age is an honour it’s still not the truth.”

Modern Vampires Of The City is out May 7 on XL Recordings.
