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. In the end though, it's all Vampire Weekend and it's insanely infectious.

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

Modern Vampires of the City is out May 7.
