As West Side Rag reports, the band’s Ezra Koenig was spotted in ‘gourmet food emporium’ Zabar’s in Manhattan’s Upper West Side last night (6th February) alongside Jonah Hill and Steve Lacy of The Internet.
As Stereogum report, crew member on the shoot told observers that the new video is set to represent “a day on the Upper West Side.”
Last year, Vampire Weekend debuted a new song called ‘Flower Moon’ live, which is touted to feature Steve Lacy. It’s all adding up here…
