"If you want crazier songs than ‘Diane Young,’ there are a couple that get a little crazier."

After premiering a handful of songs in videos and in a live performance, Vampire Weekend is streaming their new album Modern Vampires of the City one week ahead of its May 14 release date.

While premiering new albums with a live stream has become something of an industry standard, few current releases have generated the anticipation of Vampire Weekend’s third full-length album.

The band has stoked the excitement with a series of comedic videos featuring actor Steve Buscemi. The clips led up to a live-streaming show New York’s Roseland Ballroom that was directed by the Boardwalk Empire star.

The album’s first single “Diane Young,” that puts on display frontman Ezra Koenig’s Elvis Presley-styled vocals, has already worked its way onto radio playlists and blog charts around the world.
