The first two singles from Vampire Weekend‘s next album, Only God Was Above Us, are now available as announced earlier. The music videos for the two new tracks, “Capricorn” and “Gen-X Cops,” are collage-style pieces that incorporate film and footage from Steven Siegel. Steven is the photographer whose Subway Dream 11 serves as the new album cover for Vampire Weekend. 

Additionally, the Only God Was Above Us Tour has been announced by Vampire Weekend. The band’s total solar eclipse concert in Austin, Texas, in April kicks off the journey. The tickets are sold out. 

The Los Angeles League of Musicians, also known as LA LOM, the English Beat, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Mike Gordon, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Princess with Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum, Cults, Mark Ronson, the Brothers Macklovitch, and Turnstiles, a Billy Joel tribute band, are guiding the tour with all the details. 

Along with drummer Chris Tomson, Koenig co-wrote “Gen-X Cops” and “Capricorn.” The lead singer co-produced the later song with Ariel Rechtshaid and co-produced the former with Tomson”.

The songs serve as the lead single for Vampire Weekend’s debut album following Father of the Bride in 2019. The album (Only God Was Above Us) consists of ten tracks that include, “Ice Cream Piano,” “Prep-School Gangsters,” and “Mary Boone.” Stated differently, it represents the band’s comeback to New York iconography following the jammy FOTB. 

It’s “inspired and haunted by 20th-century New York,” according to a press statement. The release continued, “Haunted and inspired just the way we like our boys”.
