The show, which aired last night (May 5), was Fallon’s latest ‘at home’ episode, where guests and musicians chat and perform from their homes.

Last week, Thom Yorke debuted a brand new song called ‘Plasticine Figures’ for his performance on the show.

Back in February, Vampire Weekend shared a number of bonus tracks from ‘Father Of The Bride’, including one of Jude Law reading a classic Scottish poem by Thomas Campbell.

Speaking of his friendship with Law recently, Koenig said: “He’s come out to Vampire Weekend shows, which we always appreciated. He did a voice on Neo Yokio, the cartoon I made. So we, you know, we’ve had a relationship for a while.”

Reviewing ‘Father Of The Bride’ upon its release last year, NME wrote: “The first album in nearly six-years is a key reinvention for the indie stalwarts, with a looseness and funkiness that proves, thankfully, they’ve not overthought the comeback. It’s just load of fun, you know?”
