Vampire Weekend Releases Lyric Video for 'Ya Hey'


The indie rock band from NYC has champagne being sprayed over the rooftops of Manhattan in the new clip.

Vampire Weekend's third album "Modern Vampires of the City" is coming out soon and the New York City rockers have released a lyric video for the track "Ya Hey" to tide fans over from now until their forthcoming new album finally hits the stores. The Ezra Koenig-led indie rock band squanders perfectly good champagne for their new five-minute-plus clip as they reveal the lyrics to their latest song.

As lyrics appear in white letters across the screen, champagne generously pops and flows all throughout the entirety of the video, first from a group of folks dressed in white garb interspersed by a lady and a group of guys spraying the bubbly drink from the rooftops of Manhattan. It's usually a sign of celebration but, from the lyrics and the mood of the clip and how it's used here, speaks of a different purpose.

Somewhat commenting on the clashes between Zionism and Rastafarianism, the Motherland with the Fatherland, the faithless and the zealous ones, the lyrics rest against a heavy drum march beat and the band's blend of pop and rock for a playful new song. "And I can't help but feel that you see the mistakes/ but you let it go," goes the hook.

Vampire Weekend is set to be the musical guest on the May 11 episode of hit weekly comedy show "Saturday Night Live", to be hosted by comedian and "SNL" alum Kristen Wiig. They're also headlining a Barclays Center gig in Brooklyn this summer.
