XL Recordings’ star, Vampire Weekend, will release their third album this spring. The album ‘Modern Vampires of the City’ will be released on May 6 (UK)/ May 7 (US). This will follow 2010’s ‘Contra’, which was the first US number-one album for the band and the second for their record label (since was established in 1989). Along with Radiohead’s In Rainbows, we called the albums the kick-starter for the label’s success, which was later in 2011 producing Adele’s 21, the year’s best-selling album worldwide.
The first single ‘Diane Young’ will be released on US radio on March 19th.

The regular edition consists of twelve tracks.
- Obvious Bicycle
- Diane Young
- Don’t Lie

So, could it be their second number-one album?
