After melting down the hype machine last year with a self-title debut effort, Vampire Weekend have announced a follow-up, “Contra,” due Jan. 12 next year.
The New York-based band lit up festival stages this summer, frequently performing at least a couple new tracks like “White Sky” and “Taxi Cab.”
The ten track set is around 36 minutes long, a comparable length to the short’n’sweet “Vampire Weekend,” which clocked in at 34 minutes.
Tracklist below, with album art below that.
