    It’s finally here! After a six-year wait, Vampire Weekend have dropped their fourth studio album, Father of the Bride.

    This new record marks many firsts for the indie rockers: It’s their first release without Rostam Batmanglij as a full-time band member (he left in 2016, though he did produce album cut “We Belong Together”), and their first double album.

    Father of the Bride is also the first Vampire Weekend album to feature guest artists. The Internet’s Steve Lacy plays on “Sunflower” and “Flower Moon,” while Danielle Haim of sister act Haim pops up all over the album, often to duet with frontman Ezra Koenig.
