Vampire Weekend Reportedly Signing to Columbia for New Record

Expect Vampire Weekend LP4 sometime in 2017

It looks as though we might be blessed with a new Vampire Weekend album in 2017.

According to a report by Hits Daily Double, the New York band have been in talks with Columbia chairman and CEO Rob Stringer, potentially shopping around new material.

Seeing how both Modern Vampires of the City (2013) and Contra (2010) hit No. 1 on the charts, this is a real opportunity for the label. This would mean a departure from XL, of which all three previous records had been released on.

The report claims that a new record can be expected sometime between April and September 2017, with a following tour. Former member Rostam Batmanglij, while no longer part of the ensemble has hinted that he might be contributing to the new record in some capacity.
