Calling all Vampire Weekend fans!
Click on over to the band’s official site to grab a free track from its upcoming album, “Contra.”
The song is called “Horchata,” and you can download it directly from the website.
While this song is a little bit of a departure from the band’s first album, it’s got me wondering what the rest is going to sound like.
In a nutshell, the song seems a little more electronic than what I’m used to hearing from them, Ezra Koenig’s voice is a little strained as usual and the song has a good beat.
I recommend grabbing this freebie while you can…the album doesn’t come out until January 12, 2010, so it’s a bit of a wait.
Take a look at the cover art below…
Personally, I’m eagerly awaiting their new disc, and hoping it doesn’t disappoint. I’m also hoping for a song I love as much as “Campus” from their first album.
Speaking of, take a listen to the aforementioned song and let me know whether you like the direction the new song is heading in, or if you prefer the “oldies.”
