    So many reunions, anticipated projects, and new albums announced this year. Suede, David Bowie, Justin Timberlake and The Postal Service have all returned. We have albums by The Knife coming out and possibly The Strokes. And now, one of New York’s best Vampire Weekend also has new material being released shortly. Their third album produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (Usher, Major Lazer, and Charli XCX) and band member Rostam Batmanglij is schedule for a May 6, 2013 release.

    And although no album titled has been confirmed, the band has been caught performing a new song titled “Arms.” Performed at Sydney’s Metro Theatre in Australia, a short clip was uploaded to a tumblr site.  It’s a short clip, but you get to hear some of the more evolved production work on the new track.
