We are getting quite close to the release of Vampire Weekend’s new album Modern Vampires Of The City. We already heart “Step” & “Diane Young” as well as a bunch of other songs live. One of these is “Ya Hey” which as a live version has slowly been growing on me, which is saying something.

Today they have released an official lyric video for “Ya Hey” that gives us a clearer look at the song. There are elements from their debut/Contra here with a more refrained reflective sound mixed with their African influences.

Take a listen to “Ya Hey” below. Modern Vampires Of The City comes out May 14 via XL Recordings.
