The Moon Song (Live at the 86th Academy Awards) - Karen O and Ezra Koenig
The Moon Song (Studio Version Duet) - Karen O featuring Ezra Koenig
In this new rendition of “The Moon Song,” Karen O is joined by Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig. “I wrote the song as a duet,” Karen O explained. “I was really excited at the prospect of getting to record it with a male vocalist. Ezra was super cool and open, he slipped into character like a champ and damn he’s got the goods.”
A special three-song EP of “The Moon Song” arrives this week on iTunes.

Time to Say Goodbye (Con Te Partirò) (Preview) - Vampire Weekend
Hear Music/Concord Music Group will release the compilation Sweetheart 2014 featuring a bunch of artists doing a cover of old songs and Vampire Weekend is one of them.
Vampire Weekend’s version of “Time to Say Goodbye (Con te partirò),” made famous by the Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, is another grand eccentricity. Calling it “one of the greatest love songs of all time,” front man Ezra Koenig attests, “Its beauty transcends language.” Vampire Weekend transform the “poperatic” mega-hit with a deft, old school electronic rhythm and ultra-romantic Italian vocals.
Sweetheart 2014 will be available on CD exclusively at Starbucks and all digital outlets beginning February 4th, 2014.
