A couple of nights ago, Vampire Weekend played a couple of the songs from their great new album Modern Vampires Of The City on SNL. And last night, they stuck around NBC’s New York headquarters long enough to visit Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, using the opportunity to play a couple more album tracks. On the show proper, they employed the services of a full string section to play a lovely, lilting version of “Ya Hey.” And as an online bonus, they also did the weightless “Everlasting Arms.” Ezra Koenig’s tiny-gold-chain game: Surprisingly strong! Watch both performances below.
Modern Vampires Of The City is out now on XL.
