2009 release for Vampire Weekend?
In case you missed it, Vampire Weekend played Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night. (Sounds weird sans Conan, doesn't it?) Instead of playing a song from their still relatively fresh, 2008 self-titled debut, the Columbia grads did something a little different and performed a song called "White Sky" from their forthcoming album.
The song itself, "White Sky," is not altogether new. The band has been playing it live for at least a year, with those incarnations perhaps a bit more upbeat and stripped-down than the lush and elaborate string-filled endeavor a couple nights ago. Take a gander below:
