Vampire Weekend have recorded a cover version of Andrea Bocelli's 'Time To Say Goodbye (Con Te Partiro)'.

The unlikely cover was recorded for inclusion on a forthcoming Starbucks compilation of artist performing covers of their favourite love songs. You can hear the song here, via Rolling Stone. The album will also feature contributions from My Morning Jacket's Jim James, Valerie June, Phosphorescent and Ben Harper.
