Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig has said that the band's next record is "80% done" but that the final stretch is "always the hardest".

The frontman was responding to a (pie-themed) fan Q on Twitter:

The new record, which has the working title Mitsubishi Macchiato, will follow up 2013's Modern Vampires Of The City. It will be the first without founding member and producer Rostam Batmanglij, who left the band last year to work on his solo material.

Although all's been quiet on the Vampire Weekend front for a long while, the various members have kept busy - Koenig spent time collaborating with Beyoncé and Chris Baio has released two albums as BAIO.
