The dance-funk duo were performing at the New York festival on Friday (June 5), with Koenig joining the duo’s Dave 1 onstage for a rendition of his band’s ‘Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa’. Watch footage of that below.
Meanwhile, Koenig recently confirmed that Vampire Weekend are “gearing up to start working on another album”.
The US group released their third album ‘Modern Vampires Of The City’ in 2013. Since then members of the band have pursued collaborative projects outside of the group, most notably Koenig working with Karen O and Major Lazer while Rostam Batmanglij has been in the studio with Charli XCX among others.
Speaking in a new interview, the lead singer said a fourth Vampire Weekend album will happen, though an arrival date is some way off: “Right now we’re definitely gearing up to start working on another album but, we’re not in a zone of like getting in there everyday or anything. There have been discussions, of course there’s…in some ways, you know, we’re always working,” he said.
Koenig also suggested that older material that was deemed not right for previous albums could make its way onto album number four. “There are songs that are left over, not to diminish them, but songs that just weren’t quite right for the last album that I’m very excited about for the next album, so you know there’s little demos that I kind of listen to everyday.”
