If you have a physical copy of today's New York Times and actually know where to find the classifieds, then look for one listing that reads "Modern Vampires of the City, May 7, 2013." The phrase corresponds to a mysterious acronym hidden at the bottom of Vampire Weekend's album announcement, and Twitter confirms it: That's the new album title. All the news that's fit to print, etc.
