It dropped today on streaming apps, and it’s getting a lot of praise from longtime fans. On this page you can stream 8 tracks from,the new album from Vampire Weekend called ‘Father of the Bride’. It features the lead off single ‘Harmony Hall’. The songs have the band’s vivid mix of introspective lyrics, twangy guitars, and head-bobbing beats. VW teased this new album last summer at Lollapalooza and it was well worth it.
