Vampire Weekend, Danielle Haim cover “The Boys are Back in Town”

The Haim star joined the New York band on two other hits at last weekend’s Fuji Rock Festival.

Vampire Weekend and Danielle Haim of girl group Haim lit up Fuji Rock Festival 2018 with covers of two old-school tunes: Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys are Back in Town” and Dusty Springfield’s “Son of a Preacher Man.”

The New York indie rock outfit invited Danielle to perform alongside them during the closing moments of their set at the festival in Niigata, Japan. While their takes on both songs don’t stray far from the originals, hearing Danielle and Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig duet will brighten up your morning.

Besides the covers, Danielle stuck around to perform Vampire Weekend’s “Obvious Bicycle,” too—watch all the clips here:
