Vampire Weekend’s verified indie dreamboat Ezra Koenig has been confirmed to host one of Apple Music’s celeb-studded Beats 1 shows.
The frontman joins the likes of Dr. Dre, Elton John and St. Vincent in hosting shows on the service’s new, 24/7 global radio station.
Koenig’s show is called “Time Crisis With Ezra Koenig”. It airs first from Sunday 12th July.

Koenig stated on the No Effects Podcast that he and fellow members of the group have been in the studio in the past 12-18 months, despite each pursuing solo work outside of the group.
“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,” Koenig says. “There have been discussions, of course there’s…in some ways, you know, we’re always working.”
