Vampire Weekend Unveil New Single “Mary Boone”: Stream

Vampire Weekend are back with “Mary Boone,” the latest single from their forthcoming album Only God Was Above Us.

“Mary Boone” features angelic choirs and lush orchestrations, a drum loop sampled from Soul II Soul’s “Back to Life (However Do You Want Me),” and kaleidoscopic synths that drop in at each wordless chorus. The song’s title refers to the art dealer and collector who became well-known in the New York City art scene during the 1980s.

Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig narrates a scene in which a new inhabitant of the city seeks work under Mary Boone, and later expands the subject to include themes of love lost and change. The song’s official visualizer features the rapper Despot as he drives from New Jersey to New York City through the Lincoln Tunnel. Watch the visual below.

“Mary Boone” is Vampire Weekend’s fourth offering from Only God Was Above Us. The band released “Capricorn” and “Gen-X Cops” when announcing the LP back in February, and shared “Classical” on March 14th.

In addition to gearing up for a major 2024 headlining tour (get tickets here), Vampire Weekend have also recently launched Vampire Campfire, a podcast in which the trio have fireside chats. They also teased a slightly “punky,” slightly “jammy” side project in a profile this month.

Only God Was Above Us is out April 5th.
