Vampire Weekend's new lyric video for "Step" is quite simply a masterpiece. The music sounds great. The lyrics are beautiful. The video does an A+ job of showing the lyrics with simultaneously classic and modern images of New York City.
The album Modern Vampires of the City is set for release on May 7, 2013.
