Major Lazer Team Up with Ezra Koenig on "Vegan Vampire" [VIDEO]

Diplo's upcoming FXX cartoon series Major Lazer, named after his side project by the same name, will feature Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig as a character known as the vegan vampire.

A song by the same name will be featured in the cartoon with Koenig singing lines such as "I would never bite you, I would never bite anybody. I may be a vampire, but I'm also a vegan.”

Koenig’s vegan vampire character must seek out and destroy the “vampire vampires,” who feed not on human beings like regular vampires, but on other vampires. Basically, they are vampire cannibals and the only way to kill them is with lazers.

“It all sounds completely batsh*t insane, which is exactly what you'd expect from a Major Lazer show,” wrote Consequence of Sound in their assessment of the premise.

The song, however is actually pretty good, and you can take a listen to it here:
