Just days after debuting new material at our Public Radio Rocks day party at South by Southwest, celebrated indie rockers Vampire Weekend have come out with a double A-side single featuring two new tracks from their forthcoming third full-length album Modern Vampires in the City.

"Diane Young" is a swinging, swaggering tune that's one of the most unprectictable things the versatile quartet has released to date, veering dynamically between driving, chaotic rock and stretches of whispered improvisation. "Step" is a gently swelling ballad featuring singer Ezra Koenig's delicate crooning and densely witty lyricism at their finest. Check out both tracks in the videos below!
