Vampire Weekend Modern Vampires of the City

Next week marks the official return of New York prep-pop band Vampire Weekend, when they'll release their highly anticipated, aptly titled third album, Modern Vampires of the City. Is it as dark as it was rumored to be? Is Steve Buscemi going to contribute something other than popping up in weird promo videos? Time will tell, but you can hear half of the whole thing now, as they've been teasing out new tracks for the last several months in various studio and live capacities. Here they are:

1. "Obvious Bicycle"

2. "Unbelievers"

3. "Step"

4. "Diane Young"

5. "Everlasting Arms"

6. "Ya Hey"

Still to come: "Don't Lie," " Hannah Hunt," "Finger Back," "Worship  You," "Hudson," and "Young Lion."
