Vampire Weekend have previewed a new song online – though the chorus is somewhat familiar.

'Ottoman' features on the soundtrack of new film 'Nick And Norah's Infinite Playlist', and the new Vampire Weekend track can currently be heard on Abeano.com.

Boasting a string-laden, lighter sound than the tracks on their self-titled debut album, the song reprises the "feels so unnatural/Peter Gabriel too" from recent single 'Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa', although frontman Ezra Koenig has swapped the snappy retort of the original track for a stately falsetto delivery.

Meanwhile Peter Gabriel himself is set to have a crack at the line after Hot Chip recruited the prog legend to cover 'Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa' with them.
