Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend Ready Third Album

Vampire Weekend have ''many songs'' ready for their third album.

The 'Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa' group are working on their next album and plotting to take their sound into uncharted territory.

Bassist Chris Baio - who is also preparing his first solo release - said: ''The goal is to do something new with each record. I like the idea of being able to do your own thing, and then also coming together and making a band record.''

However, the group have no definite release date for the record, with Chris adding: ''It'll be done when it's done. That's where it is now.''

Chris' solo tracks are much more influenced by dance music, and he says he started the project as soon as he got off the road with Vampire Weekend, which also includes Ezra Koenig,

Rostam Batmanglij and Chris Tomson.

He added to NME magazine: ''I've loved dance music for a long time. When I got off the road, I knew I would have some time off. It affects me badly if I'm just sitting around, so I just started making music straight away.''
