Baio talks about LP3 and his upcoming solo project to NME.
He says that the third album is “in progress now” and confirms that there are “many songs” in the bag already. As for a completion date, never mind a release date, well, there isn’t one yet: “It’ll be done when it’s done. That’s where it is now.”
It has been reported before that there is a track in LP3 where Rostam is playing the banjo (as pictured above) and it got everyone excited. Well this just in: the banjo track in LP3, according to Ezra, is ”looking good”. Thanks Addison for the heads up!
From NME’s Albums of 2012 issue: Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig and Rostam Batmanglij have been in the keyboardist’s New York studio working on new songs, with a summer release most likely for the album.
