Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig Covers "Little Drummer Boy" with Members of HAIM
"A top 3 Christmas song imho"
In a clip posted on Instagram, we see Koenig handling guitar and lead vocals in what appears to be a private jam session. In the background, Danielle Haim sings harmonies and plays some lead guitar, and it appears to be Este Haim on the bass.
Watch the clip below.
In the caption, Koenig wrote that "Little Drummer Boy" is "a top 3 Christmas song imho."
a late night jam session in honor of the prince of peace. "Little Drummer Boy" is a top 3 Christmas song imho. imagine that you come to see the messiah and he's been given all sorts of regal gifts like frankincense and myrrh. All you have to give is...a drum solo. You only get one shot. Do not miss your chance to blow. This opportunity comes once in a lifetime. You wail on the snare for a solid 20 minutes. Paradiddles upon paradiddles. You collapse in exhaustion. Did he like it? It's unclear...until he smiles. You killed it, drummer boy.
Vampire Weekend have been working on a new album for some time now. We'd love to say that we're excited for its release in 2019, except we also called it one of 2018's most anticipated albums, so nothing's certain.
