Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig has shared an update on the status of the band’s next album.

Speaking with Mark Hoppus on the Blink-182 bassist’s After School Radio show on Apple Music Hits, Koenig reveals that he and his band mates “almost have an album’s worth of songs” in the works.

“You could tinker with a song forever; change the arrangement, change the lyrics, whatever,” Koenig says. “But in that sense we’re close.”

“I have no idea how long it’ll take to finish, but we’re feeling really good about the new material,” he adds.  “So yeah, a lot of studio time to come after the holidays.”

Vampire Weekend’s most recent album is 2019’s Father of the Bride, which spawned the singles “Harmony Hall” and “This Life.”
