Vampire Weekend have covered Robin Thicke's Number One single 'Blurred Lines'.

The band played the track in BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge – listen to their version via Pretty Much Amazing. Last month Queens Of The Stone Age also covered the single in the Live Lounge.

Vampire Weekend recently dished out love advice for teenagers. Frontman Ezra Koenig and bassist Chris Baio recorded a video for Rookie's Ask A Grown Man series, and gave their thoughts on everything from how to break-up with a paramour to whether girls should be offended that their partners were watching pornography. Previous participants in Rookie's Ask A Grown Man include comedian Jimmy Fallon, director Judd Apatow and Radiohead's Thom Yorke.

Vampire Weekend have also announced details of a UK arena tour. The band, who released their third studio album 'Modern Vampires Of The City' earlier this year, will play five dates in total. Starting in Birmingham on November 12, Vampire Weekend will play shows in London, Glasgow and Leeds before ending in Manchester on November 17. Noah and The Whale will support on all dates.
