Vampire Weekend - ContraVampire Weekend has recently disclosed some details  about their forthcoming album, Contra. You may have actually seen this preppy blonde photo floating around the blogosphere as of late, not knowing what it was. Or not. Either way, it will be the cover art for the new record which will be released on Jan. 12th through XL.  Along with the cover art, the band has also released the tracklist.  The one song on there that might actually mean something to any of you would “White Sky”, which they first unveiled live on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.  Although it according to what frontman Ezra Koenig told Entertainment Weekly, it might sound quite a bit different. “The recorded version is very different from how we played it on Fallon,” said Koenig. “The real version is more like how we’ve been playing it live. There’s a lot of synth sounds, and it’s a little more pumped up.”  No music has been shared with us yet, but I’ll fill you in once I get the chance to hear it.  Here is the tracklist and a couple of Canadian tour dates coming up.
