1. Vampire Weekend are going to release their third album, “Modern Vampires of the City,” on May 7th.
2. They debuted two new songs on the radio in London and Los Angeles today, both of which will be released as a vinyl single on April 9th. The first is “Diane Young,” which is a lot more abrasive and old school rock than you might expect from them.
3. The other song is called “Step,” which is a little bit like the more mellow songs from their last album, “Contra.”
4. The songs will be available as a digital single tomorrow.
