Last month, Vampire Weekend decided to begin 2019 by formally announcing their next official studio album, Father of the Bride. Their first full-length release in six years, Father of the Bride will serve as the follow-up to 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City LP, and was originally introduced with the release of two new lead-singles, “2021” and “Harmony Hall.” Now, further supporting Father of the Bride, Vampire Weekend are serving up a visual for “Harmony Hall.” Today’s new “Harmony Hall” vignette serves as the first music video for a Father of the Bride record, and was put together by director Emmett Malloy, who has worked with the group on multiple occasions in the past. Notably, the “Harmony Hall” clip also features appearances from Blood Orange architect Dev Hynes and Jonah Hill.
“Anger wants a voice, voices wanna sing / Singers harmonize ’til they can’t hear anything / I thought that I was free from all that questionin’ / But every time a problem ends, another one begins,” Ezra Koenig sings. “And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness / Anybody with a worried mind could never forgive the sight / Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified / I don’t wanna live like this, but I don’t wanna die.”
You can view Vampire Weekend’s new video for “Harmony Hall” above. Vampire Weekend’s Father of the Bride album is scheduled to arrive in spring of this year, and more new singles are expected to hit streaming platforms in the near future.
