Vampire Weekend have released two more songs from their upcoming fourth album Father of the Bride, sharing "This Life" and "Unbearably White."
The two-track combo marks the final pair of songs to be revealed before the full album arrives, following "Harmony Hall" and "2021," as well as "Big Blue" and "Sunflower."
"This Life" hears frontman Ezra Koenig riffing on lyrics from ILOVEMAKONNEN's song "Tonight," and it features production by Ariel Rechtshaid and Dave Macklovitch of Chromeo, vocals from Danielle Haim of HAIM, guitar from Jake Longstreth (Koenig's Beats 1 co-host on Time Crisis), and even features a composer credit by Mark Ronson.
"Unbearably White," meanwhile, features production by pop wizard (and Koenig's Neo Yokio Christmas song collaborator) BloodPop.
Listen to "This Life" and "Unbearably White" below.
Father of the Bride is out May 3 via Columbia Records/Spring Snow. Vampire Weekend will embark on a North American tour later this year.
