Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend Settle With Contra Cover Model

Rockers Vampire Weekend have settled a dispute with the former model who graced the cover of their Contra album.
Last year (10), Ann Kirsten Kennis sued the band, record label XL Recordings and photographer Tod Brody for $2 million (£1.25 million), claiming that she never gave permission for her likeness to be used.
Brody was allegedly paid for licensing the image for the album, but Kennis alleged he forged the model-release signature.
The initial case has now been dismissed after the four parties agreed to settle for an undisclosed amount.
Vampire Weekend and XL executives have also filed suit against Brody, insisting he's responsible for any liability.
