It's release is only eight days away, but Vampire Weekend have decided to unlease its sophomore album "Contra" in its entirety on MySpace.

You can listen to the set here.

The breezy New York band is promoting the 10-track release with an appearance on "Late Night with David Letterman" tomorrow (Jan. 5).

They have some previously announced tour dates in the 'States, but they've all sold out and here we are like a bunch of jerks without tickets. But, hey, it appears all dates Feb. 19 on are still up, if you're game to travel overseas.

Get some visual excitement with their trippy vid for "Cousins," which so far is our favorite track.

"Contra" is the follow-up to Vampire Weekend's self-titled debut from 2008.
