Vampire Weekend have released "Mary Boone" - the fourth and final advance offering from Only God Was Above Us out April 5th via Columbia Records, along with a official visualizer which features a rapper who's never released an album, Despot, driving from New Jersey to Manhattan via the Lincoln Tunnel.

Written by Ezra Koenig and featuring a sample of the iconic drum loop from "Back to Life (However Do You Want Me)" by Soul II Soul. Produced by Ariel Rechtshaid and Koenig, with lush orchestral arrangements by Will Canzoneri, Koenig and Rechtshaid, the song - named for one of the most influential figures of the NYC art world of the 1980s-features a soaring, operatic choir alongside Koenig's understated but honeyed vocals, and lyrics referencing Tadao Ando churches, Natarajas, hex signs, and whirling Dervishes. As its eclectic sonic and lyrical tapestries unfold, the song finds a narrator looking to get their foot in the door of the New York art world (or perhaps something bigger). (continue)
