Vampire Weekend has announced plans to release a double album this year, with the first 2 new tracks dropping next week.
Frontman Ezra Koenig said on Instagram the band will release “three 2-song drops every month until the record is out,” starting next week.
Koenig also revealed the initials for the upcoming 18-track double album’s title, FOTB.
“It’s a lot of songs but they all belong there. (If you disagree, you can always say it was 6 songs too long & make a lil 12-song playlist version of it.),” Koenig wrote in a caption. “
He added, “At first, I wanted to make two 23-song albums on some human chromosome shit but then 23&me started doing Spotify playlists and I don’t know…felt we’d been scooped.”
The band has not revealed the full album title or the official release date. Vampire Weekend released their last album Modern Vampires of the City about in 2013.
“Many of you have been hungry for information and we’ve given you very little,” Koenig continued. “I don’t like talking abt a project while in the middle of making it. I usually regret everything I say cuz it turns out to be wrong (so disregard anything I may have said in the past 5 years.)”
He added, “I thought abt making a recording diary to tide over the people leaving intense comments but…to me, the album IS the recording diary…man.”
