Hi, I wanted to ask if those pictures with "meet Ezra" written on them were really meant to be done for an American apparel campaign or if they belong to a photoshoot. And if you can post them, please! Thanks x
No ohmygod, those are just made by fans. Those photos are by Dustin Aksland and it was for Esquire USA’s May 2013 issue, wherein Ezra wrote an article about his first watch. I have posted/reblogged some of the pics before (you can check this tag) but I have found two more outtakes from Dustin’s site and I’m gonna post them in a bit :)
do you think they'll have any more performances in the US? besides those they just listed, that is. i missed their performance in MD and i'm considering going to one of the ones they just announced, but if they're going to tour some more i'll just wait, but i'm not so sure. what do you think? :s
I’m pretty sure they will announce more US dates though I don’t know when. Rostam said (in a recent interview) that touring is definitely going to slow down next yearso like what I’ve said before, if you have the means to go to the recently announced shows you should because you don’t want to regret any missed opportunity in the future. Hopefully they will perform in your hood soon so it’ll be more convenient for you.
Time to Say Goodbye (Con Te Partirò) (Preview) - Vampire Weekend
Hear Music/Concord Music Group will release the compilation Sweetheart 2014 featuring a bunch of artists doing a cover of old songs and Vampire Weekend is one of them.
Vampire Weekend’s version of “Time to Say Goodbye (Con te partirò),” made famous by the Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, is another grand eccentricity. Calling it “one of the greatest love songs of all time,” front man Ezra Koenig attests, “Its beauty transcends language.” Vampire Weekend transform the “poperatic” mega-hit with a deft, old school electronic rhythm and ultra-romantic Italian vocals.
Sweetheart 2014 will be available on CD exclusively at Starbucks and all digital outlets beginning February 4th, 2014.
