Vampire Weekend has collaborated with Jonah Hill on their video for “Sunflower,” the track is off their forthcoming release Father Of The Bride. Filmed at locations on New York’s Upper West Side including Zabar’s and Barney Greengrass.

The video stars Ezra Koenig and Steve Lacy (who features on the song), with surprise cameos including Jerry Seinfeld and Fab 5 Freddy.

“Sunflower” is half of the second pair of songs to be released in advance of Vampire Weekend’s forthcoming Father of the Bride, which will be released May 3rd on Columbia Records.

Father of the Bride’s release will be followed by Vampire Weekend’s most ambitious tour to date, preceded by a headline appearance at the Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama, and beginning a run of arena and amphitheater headline dates throughout North America. The tour will include the band’s biggest hometown show to date June 6th at Madison Square Garden—having immediately sold out the standard end stage configuration at MSG, Vampire Weekend have opened up every seat in the building to allow for a full 360 show.
