Ezra Koenig-led band throws a wild party and invites some famous faces including Sky Ferreira, Chromeo and Santigold in the clip
Vampire Weekend debuts a music video for "Diane Young". The video begins with the band members gathering with several other people for a Last Supper. The peaceful-looked mealtime then turns into a chaotic party with confetti all over the place and some other people dancing wildly.
The bizarre party continues with vocalist Ezra Koenig whispering something to a black-masked man while bassist Chris Baio kisses and caresses an espresso machine. The party gets stranger when someone uses a saxophone as a bong.
The Primo Khan-directed video also features some big names, including Sky Ferreira, Santigold, Chromeo's David Macklovitch and Patrick Gemayel, Walkmen's Hamilton Leithauser, and Dirty Projector's Dave Longstreth.
This is not the first Vampire Weekend's video that has famous faces on it. Lil Jon, Joe Jonas, RZA, and Jake Gyllenhaal made cameo appearances in the indie rock band's "Giving Up the Gun" clip.
"Diane Young" is the lead single of Vampire Weekend's third studio album, "Modern Vampires of the City". The album, which was released on May 14, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. According to Nielsen Soundscan, the album has sold 134,000 copies.
Koenig, Baio, Rostam Batmanglij and Chris Tomson are scheduled to highlight some music festivals, including U.K.'s Glastonburry Festival and Chicago's Lollapalooza this summer.
