New Vampire Weekend Pt. 3

The first new Vampire Weekend tune we heard that would be on the new Album Contra was White Sky, pretty good but a weak live recoring, then the first single Horchata which was brilliant! A good live version of Cousins dropped the other day which was very exciting and then this morning I got my hands on the studio version, not a leak or anything it's out today. The quality's iTunes-ish so no radio/club play for it yet but that's cos I haven't gotten out of bed yet and bought the single in the music shop downstairs. For the moment, this is Cousins, from Contra which will be out January 12th
