Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio is set to release his debut solo album on September 18 via Glassnote. He’ll be going simply under his last name and album will be titled The Names after a Don DeLillo novel from 1982 of the same name. We’ve already heard “Brainwash yyrr Face” and “Sister of Pearl” and now the latter has a fun little video. It simply features Baio in a suit (sans tie) and sneakers singing and dancing around London, where he lives now.

“Sister of Pearl” is more overtly Vampire Weekend sounding than the electronic tones of “Brainwash yyrr Face.” Daniel Navetta directed the clip. Watch it below via Noisey, who premiered it.

Noisey also got a quote from Baio about the video: “I’ve always loved dancing-some of my earliest life memories involve dancing around my family’s dining room table to Thrillerwhen I was little. For this video, Daniel Navetta found some incredible places in London for me to do some dancing. I hope you enjoy watching me creep around the city I’ve lived in for the past two years… I know I had fun making the video.”

Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I’m getting fed up of Wordpress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking
at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could
point me in the direction of a good platform.
