    Sunflower in the morning
    Standing in the garden
    All before you wake

    No power can compel you
    Out into the daylight
    Let that evil wait

    Strange thought upon the pillow:
    “What day demands a date?”
    Well I don’t know

    Sunflower in the evening
    Standing in the garden
    Taking up that space

    No power can compel me
    Back into the daylight
    Let that evil wait

    Strange thought upon the pillow:
    “What day demands a date?”
    Well I don’t know
    Written by Ezra Koenig
    Produced by Ariel Rechtshaid & Ezra Koenig

    28. Jared Smith

      How does this song sound like late-era Beatles AND southern hip-hop at the same time

    39. Thibaut Vandame

      thank god for zabars!

    40. Scort

      This is the strangest collaboration of artists that I could not have ever imagined; I'm thankful it happened. Steve Lacy is a protege, do give his music some listenin'. I am still just so taken aback Jonah Hill directed a Vampire Weekend music video featuring Steve Lacy. Life is awesome.

    41. Gabby Mehler

      I see your ocean's eleven cuts and i appreciate them.

    42. Mila Leela

      I am kind of ashamed to love it so much !!!!

    43. Timothy Wagner

      Jonah Hill Directing a Vampire Weekend Video... whoa... dig the sounds

    45. Su Kitil

      thanks for the headache jonah

    46. Sean Michael

      This is what all the hype was about? I love the people that worked on this project but this was very underwhelming.

    47. Patamus2

      Time Crisis to a t


      Any cinematographer will respect this video Especially me being a huge Steve lacy / vampire weekend fan this is huge!


      Jonah hill is the goat for this video

    50. Stephanie Rising

      I kinda like this song

    51. Davin Lewis


    52. Carollia

      Like the song, but the video makes me dizzy, I get that they want to be innovative, but there are other ways to do, I think that all those NYC shoots have been wasted

    53. Tons of White babies


    54. Chelly Rivas

      Awww loving it very original 👌🤔thank Kato

    55. Karla Williams Ricketts

      Yes let them think about what they did....dabda Then acceptance will be grand or better yet organ piano

    67. Ros Nawati


    68. itheuser First

      Has a bit of a Zappa vibe in parts.

    69. New Alternative 40 Chart

      "Sunflower" is #4 on the New Alternative 40 Chart this week.

    70. Dre Orozco

      I read a comment that said this song had Beatles vibes and this video screams Rubber Soul-vibes. The title card and color scheme is too on-point. LOVE.

    71. Pedalpunk57

      I thought it would be a cover of Sunflower by Post Malone and Swae Lee but it's something original and sounds like an old song by The Beatles or something!

    72. Albert Normal

      Warning: May cause motion sickness :{ Nice song though.

    73. Ruth Naranjo

      I came here for my king Jonah and I think I'm gonna stay, this shit good af

    74. BUFFY chicken

      This song sounds like vampire weekend got rolled up in a katamari

    75. WERQ DJ

      I like the song, i love steve lacy. This video is pretentious and dizzying.

    76. Kamil Henri

      Everyone: “Avengers: Endgame will be the greatest crossover of the century” Vampire Weekend, Steve Lacy, Jonah Hill & Jerry Seinfeld:

    83. fana406

      HELL NO!

    84. sweet tazdingo

    86. John Berkley

      There should be a health warning on vampire weekend tracks because they are so addictive

    87. Maxi Santos

      This gives me Superbad's vibes!!

    88. Andefenci Addi

      I expected more from all 4 of them . 6/10 at best >_> . Steve Lacey was really just for clout lmao .

    89. Pillsinmyshoes

      I don't really like it, and I love both of you guys so I'm pretty disappointed tbh, this was sad. It felt lazy and boring. Bye.

    90. del0373

      Nope 👎🏽

    91. P F / Dad Reacts

      Sunflower > Sunflower

    92. MRFKontesSEO

    93. Opening Ceremony

      Please can someone write down here the final joke being told to Seinfeld. I don't understand what that man is saying. Thanks 😊

      1. 11Dubs30

        Jerry I got a pitch for you.... ....oh great, that's what I come here for (super good and quick comeback because he's just saying, I just want a sandwich). "(.....unknown word) getting locks on a bagel."

      2. 11Dubs30

        Yeah what was it?

    94. jcwynn

      What The Beatles would sound like if they were still making music today

    95. Justin Billie
