Jude Law features on Vampire Weekend ‘Father of the Bride’ bonus track

There are three additional tracks on the release.

The Japanese version of Vampire Weekend’s chart-bothering latest, ‘Father of the Bride’, has been released today (15th May). It features three bonus tracks, one of which features actor Jude Law.

‘Lord Ullin’s Daughter’ has him reading Thomas Campbell’s 300-year-old poem of the same name over a stripped-back take on ‘Big Blue’.

The other bonus tracks are ‘Houston, Dubai’ and ‘I Don’t Think Much About Her No More’.

Jude Law has previously featured on Ezra Koenig’s Netflix anime series Neo Yokio, voicing a robot butler.

Vampire Weekend play Mad Cool (11th - 13th July) where DIY is an official media partner. Tickets are on sale now. Visit for more information.
