Vampire Weekend is red-hot. Their critically acclaimed new album, Modern Vampires of the City, debuted at number one on the Billboard charts and sold nearly 135,000 copies in its first week. It's the band's second consecutive album to reach the top of the charts.
Here's the video for "Diane Young," the band's first single to reach the top 10 in the U.S. It was directed by Primo Kahn and features cameos by The Walkmen's Hamilton Leithauser, Santigold, Dirty Projector's Dave Longstreth and others.
Catch Vampire Weekend live when they perform at Austin City Limits on October 4-6.
