Rostam Batmanglij left the Vampire Weekend. However, he said that he and the band frontman Ezra Koenig will continue to collaborate on future projects and Vampire Weekend songs. The group is ready to record their fourth album. In a note on Instagram, Koenig wrote "For now in the Vampire Weekend universe, it's all about recording the next album. There will be a lot of familiar faces in the studio but also some fresh, new ones. Working title is 'Mitsubishi Macchiato"... for obvious reasons".
The new album is expected to be released in 2016.
