Vampire Weekend Celebrate 2021 with '40:42' EP
Vampire Weekend released their excellent fourth album Father of the Bride back in 2019, but the album's "2021" has had renewed relevance for obvious reasons. Today, the band have shared 40:42 — an EP that features two covers of the song, each 20 minutes and 21 seconds long.

The tracks arrive courtesy of jazz explorer Sam Gendel and Connecticut jam band Goose. Both tracks are available to stream below via YouTube visualizers, and they're also available on streaming services.

Vampire Weekend was also recently covered by the Christian alt-rock band Switchfoot.
