Last week, Vampire Weekend got fans excited when frontman Ezra Koenig shared a lengthy update that not only promised their long-awaited fourth studio album would be coming out this year, but that we could expect two new songs this week. He also explained that two more two-song drops would be coming in the months leading up to the album, which has the abbreviated title of FOTB. Ezra hinted that the first two songs would be hh/2021, and on Tuesday (January 22) revealed that "2021" and "Harmony Hall" would be coming out on Thursday (January 24).
"Harmony Hall & 2021 out Thursday. For now, here’s 120 Minutes of Harmony Hall Guitars. Link in bio," the band posted on Instagram, along with a mysterious flowchart that could hint at a lyric: "We took a vow in summertime."
The band wasn't kidding, either. They literally uploaded a two-hour loop of the guitar riffs that will be featured in "Harmony Hall."
In addition they shared the guitar tabs for the song, and even posted a video of them jamming out to the guitar part of the song during their set at Lollapalooza last year.
Listen to 120 minutes of "Harmony Hall" guitars and peep Vampire Weekend's Instagram posts below, and get excited for the band's first new music in over six years to drop later this week.
