Vampire Weekend Perform ‘Diane Young’ + Other New Songs on ‘QTV’
The Internet was aflutter this morning thanks to Vampire Weekend‘s appearance on the Canadiann show ‘QTV,’ where they played three songs from their forthcoming album ‘Modern Vampires of the City.’ Ezra Koenig and the boys tore through lead single, ‘Diane Young’ (watch above at 6:20); ‘Unbelievers” (below at 19:09); and ‘Ya Hey’ (below 43:34). The videos also include rather in-depth interviews with VW.
Although ‘QTV’ is a Canadian show, last night’s performance was filmed in New York City, marking the first hometown show for the VW lads — who met at Columbia University — in two-and-a-half years. The release of ‘Modern Vampires of the City’ was recently pushed back one week to May 14. Check out the somewhat controversial (to Saab owners, apparently) ‘Diane Young’ video here.
