Listen to Vampire Weekend cover Post Malone & Swae Lee's "Sunflower"

Credit: Monika Mogi Prior to Vampire Weekend releasing their new song "Sunflower," rappers Post Malone and Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee notched a hit with a single that's also called "Sunflower," from the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack. Now, the band is paying tribute to its predecessors with a cover of Post and Swae's "Sunflower."

Ezra Koenig and company performed their cover during a session on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge, and turned the Billboard Hot 100 #1 hit into a more of a jam, which could fit right in with VW's recent material.

Vampire Weekend's "Sunflower," meanwhile, will appear on the band's upcoming album Father of the Bride, which also includes the lead single "Harmony Hall." The much-anticipated follow-up to 2013's Modern Vampires of the City arrives May 3.
