Vampire Weekend are releasing a new album, Father of the Bride, on May 3 via Columbia/Spring Snow. Now they have shared a video for recent single "Sunflower" (which features Steve Lacy of The Internet). Actor Jonah Hill directed the video, which features Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig and Lacy, as well as cameos from comedy legend Jerry Seinfeld and rapper/visual artist Fab 5 Freddy. It was filmed in New York's Upper West Side, including at Zabar's deli and the Barney Greengrass restaurant, and features lots of split screen images and swirling camera movements. Watch it below, followed by Vampire Weekend's upcoming tour dates.

Previously Vampire Weekend shared two songs from Father of the Bride: "Harmony Hall" (which was #2 on our Songs of the Week list) and "2021," as well as a video for "Harmony Hall." Then they shared "Sunflower" (which was one of our Songs of the Week) and "Big Blue."

Father of the Bride is the band's fourth album. The band's last album was 2013's Modern Vampires of the City. Since then founding member/producer Rostam Batmanglij left the band as a full-time member.
