Vampire Weekend: This Life + Unbearably White – újabb két dal a Father Of The Bride albumról

2019. április 4., 14:27

A Vampire Weekend New York-i indie pop sztárzenekar hat év után idén május 3-án adja ki Father Of The Bride című negyedik albumát, melyről havonta párosával mutatja be a felvezető számokat: a februári 2021 és Harmony Hall (meg az utóbbinak a Blood Orange, Daneille Haim és Jonah Hill szereplésével készült videója), majd a márciusi Big Blue és Sunflower (meg az utóbbihoz az Internet-tag Steve Lacy, a rapper Fab 5 Freddy és a komikus Jerry Seinfeld közreműködésével forgatott Jonah Hill-klip) után most áprilisra itt a This Life / Unbearably White dalpár is.

A fenti csoportképen a veterán Hall & Oates duóval pózoló Vampire Weekend-tagok – a dobos Chris Tomson, a basszista Chris Baio és a kölyökképű dalszerző-gitáros-énekes Ezra Koenig – még mindig nem tették közzé az új album teljes dallistáját, de azt már tudhatjuk, hogy az ismét Ariel Rechtshaid sztárproducerrel rögzített 18 számos lemezen a This Life a negyedik, az Unbearably White pedig a hetedik felvételként szerepel majd. Az Unbearably White-ban a popproducer BloodPop is besegített, míg a Chromeo-frontember Dave Macklovitch társproduceri és Mark Ronson társszerzői segédletével készült This Life-ban a Haim gitáros-énekesnője, Danielle Haim vokálozik és a Dirty Projectors-főnök Dave Longstreth gitározik vendégként.

a This Life vizuálja az élet csodájával, sejtekkel, gombákkal és majmokkal:

Baby, I know pain is as natural as the rain
I just thought it didn’t rain in California
Baby, I know love isn’t what I thought it was
Cause I’ve never known a love like this before ya

Baby, I know dreams tend to crumble at extremes
I just thought our dream would last a little bit longer
There’s a time when every man draws a line down in the sand
We’re surviving, we’re still living all stronger

You’ve been cheating on cheating on me
I’ve been cheating on cheating on you
You’ve been cheating on me
But I’ve been cheating through this life and all its suffering
Oh Christ, am I good for nothing?

Baby I know hate is always waiting at the gate
I just thought we locked the gate when we left in the morning
I was told that war is how we landed on these shores
I just thought the drums would all be loud warnings

You’ve been cheating on cheating on me
I’ve been cheating on cheating on you
You’ve been cheating on me
But I’ve been cheating through this life and all its suffering
Oh Christ, am I good for for nothing?

Baby I know death probably hasn’t happened yet
Cause I don’t remember living life before this
And darling, our disease is the same one as the trees
Unaware that they’ve been living in a forest

You’ve been cheating on cheating on me
I’ve been cheating on cheating on you
You’ve been cheating on me
But I’ve been cheating through this life and all its suffering
Oh Christ, am I good for nothing?

This life and all its suffering

az Unbearably White egy hóban elvesző sízővel:

Baby, I love you
But that is not enough
Pulling away is being unbearably white
I ran up the mountain
Out of your sight
Snow peak was just unbearably white

The city was freezing
An elegant flow
The wind at the doorway was unbearably cold
You walked through the bedroom
And sat down all right
Baby, your notebook was unbearably white

There’s an avalanche coming
Don’t cover your eyes
Is what you thought you wanted
Still a surprise?
Is hard on the body
Is hard on the mind
To look kept us together, darling
Is what kept us alive

Sooner or later
The story gets told
To tell it myself would be unbearably bold
Present it with darkness
Return to the light
It could be smart but just unbearably bright

There’s an avalanche coming
Don’t cover your eyes
Is what you thought you wanted
Still a surprise
Is hard on the body
Is hard on the mind
To look kept us together, darling
Is what kept us alive

Caught it at day
Caught it at night
Careless and cold
Just unbearably white

Caught it at day
Caught it at night
Careless and cold
Just unbearably white

Caught it at day
Caught it at night
Careless and cold
Just unbearably white

Baby, I love you
But that is not enough
Pulling away is being unbearably white
I ran up the mountain
Out of your sight
Snow peak was just unbearably white

Caught it at day
Caught it at night
Careless and cold
Just unbearably white
