The champagne is being popped maybe a tad early, but not necessarily prematurely, in Vampire Weekend’s new lyric video for “Ya Hey.” The video is likely the the last teaser we’ll get before Modern Vampires Of The City is released in just a little under two weeks on May 14 via XL.
The clip itself isn’t the most engrossing or bizarre video Vampire Weekend has ever put out, but one get’s the impression that Vampire Weekend is allowing the lyrics of their music to just speak for themselves here. Like the equally striking lyric videos for “Diane Young” and “Step,” these clips show off a still playful but perhaps more introspective Vampire Weekend. Watch below as Vampire Weekend celebrates the soon to be release of, what has been preempted to be, a shrewder record.
