Vampire Weekend are releasing a new album, Father of the Bride, on May 3 via Columbia/Spring Snow. Now they have shared two more songs from it: "This Life" and "Unbearably White." They are said to be the last two songs the band will share from the album before its release. Listen to them both below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

"This Life" features backing vocals from Danielle Haim and additional guitar from Jake Longstreth. Ariel Rechtshaid and Ezra Koenig produced the song, with additional production by Dave Macklovitch from Chromeo. The song borrows lyrics ("You've been cheating on, cheating on me/So I've been cheating on, cheating on you") from iLoveMakonnen's "Tonight."

Koenig wrote "Unbearably White," which he produced with Ariel Rechtshaid, with additional production by BloodPop.

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 features Steve Lacy of The Internet and was one of our Songs of the Week) and "Big Blue." Then they shared a video for "Sunflower" directed by actor Jonah Hill and featuring comedy legend Jerry Seinfeld and rapper/visual artist Fab 5 Freddy.

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.
