Happy new music Friday, from Vampire Weekend. Hot on the heels of their Grammy win for Best Alternative Album, Ezra Koenig and the boys this morning uploaded three previously unreleased songs that initially appeared on the Japanese edition of last year's Father of the Bride. The selection includes one original song, titled "Houston Dubai," a cover of Mickey Newbury's 1969 track "I Don't Think Much About Her No More," and a Jude Law recitation of Thomas Campbell's poem "Lord Ullin's Daughter." Hear all three of the tracks, and peep Vampire Weekend's forthcoming Father of the Bride tour dates, below
