'Father of the Bride' will be out on May 3.

Vampire Weekend released two new songs, “Sunflower” and “Big Blue,” with accompanying visualizers on Wednesday (March 6). The band also shared the cover art for their upcoming album Father of the Bride and confirmed the LP's May 3 release date.

The whimsical synth-pop “Sunflower” features Steve Lacy from Los Angeles-based band The Internet. The song’s visuals depict satellite-images of hurricanes moving over various states. “Big Blue” is a minute-long mellow tune; its visuals depict bright fish swimming against a stark white background.

The band also shared their minimalist cover art for their highly-anticipated album.
