Vampire Weekend's record label addresses "Contra" model lawsuit

vampire weekend contra

By Chris Richards

Last week, we noted that Kirsten Kennis, the model whose 1983-face adorns the cover of Vampire Weekend's "Contra" album, is suing the band. Today, the band and its label, XL Recordings, issued an official statement on the matter:

"As is standard practice, Vampire Weekend and XL Recordings licensed the rights to use the photo on the cover of Contra pursuant to a license agreement that contains representations and warranties authorizing this use of the photo. Now that a lawsuit has been filed, we look forward to having the matter resolved in Court. We will be filing our response after we have had an opportunity to review the allegations. Consistent with our practice, we will not be commenting further about the pending litigation at this time."
