It’s finally arrived – the first single from Vampire Weekend’s much anticipated new album, Modern Vampires of the City. “Diane Young” is a stomper of the highest caliber, sometimes channeling Elvis, other times calling on stalwart sonic reference, Paul Simon.

“Diane Young” comes with a calmer, more pensive b-side, “Step”:

Modern Vampires of the City is out May 7.
