Vampire Weekend returned to Saturday Night Live last night to perform their new single, “Diane Young,” promote their new album, Modern Vampires of The City, and to show off lead singer Ezra Koenig’s unique vocal range.

Vampire Weekend followed the catchy “Diane Young” with another new typically upbeat single, “Unbelievers.”
Saturday Night Live returns next week for its season finale. Ben Affleck will host and musical guest Kanye West will presumably debut his next single.
