Vampire Weekend’s Chris Tomson has officially released his holiday song “Yeah Yeah (It’s Christmas).” Tomson wrote the Grateful Dead-referencing song, which he dropped under his Dams of the West moniker, years ago and performed the tune as part of Dave Harrington’s Holiday Spectacular at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl last December. “May this be the soundtrack to your Black Friday stampedes, your Finnish Independence Day bbqs and your non-denominational Vespers ceremonies,” Tomson said in a statement.

Vampire Weekend are currently working on the follow-up to their 2013 release Modern Vampires of the City.
