Last we heard from them: They released a remix of "Step" featuring Danny Brown, Heems, and Despot right at the end of 2013.
The beginning of 2016 brought some big news for Vampire Weekend fans. Ezra Koenig confirmed that the band had started recording the follow-up to 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City, but it was also announced that Rostam Batmanglij would be leaving the band. Responsible for producing all three of their albums, it came as a bit of a shock. Rostam went on to release a fantastic solo album, letting us know his presence will be missed.
Each of the band’s albums have been fantastic, though, and there’s no doubt they’ll be able to live up to their reputation with a fourth. Judging that they’ve been working on the album for at least a year already, there’s little doubt we’ll be hearing their highly anticipated fourth album in 2018.
