Major Lazer – “Vegan Vampire” (Feat. Ezra Koenig)

“I would never bite you. I would never bite anybody. I may be a vampire, but I’m also a vegan. Pshh, you wouldn’t understand.” That’s some dialogue from Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig, in character as vegan vampire Rylan, on a weird, wild, collage-like Major Lazer song tentatively titled “Vegan Vampire.” It sounds very much like a scene from an Adult Swim show, which makes sense because it’s lifted from Major Lazer’s FFX cartoon, which was originally developed for Adult Swim in 2011 and was recently had a sneak peek as part of FFX Animation Domination High-Def. It also features this exchange:

Koenig: “Can I come inside?”
Woman: “Yeah, you can come wherever you want.”

In other Koenig news, he joined SBTRKT at Terminal 5 in New York last week to perform their collaboration “NEW DORP. NEW YORK,” and you can watch fan-made footage of that moment here:

Koenig also guested on Terrible Records’ radio show hosted by Ethan Silverman and Dev Hynes, where he discussed such subjects as iLoveMakonnen, Hot Chelle Rae, and John Wick:
