Vampire Weekend singer Ezra Koenig is the latest artist to appear on The Tonight Show: At Home Edition with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday (May 5).

Koenig didn't just treat fans to one song but a super-dreamy piano medley of Father of the Bride's “Flower Moon,” “Stranger,” and “Big Blue.” 

Fans also get a cool sneak peek into the frontman's impressive home studio featuring guitars, large stacks of synths, amps and more. If you look closely enough, you can also see how he rigged up his iPhone to record a second angle of the performance from the back.

Speaking of the recording, many viewers were surprised to see that he was such a talented pianist! “That’s next level piano stuff, I’m sure he didn’t have that all worked out before the record came out,” one fan commented on YouTube. 

Vampire Weekend released three bonus tracks off Father of the Bride in March and just recently, The Killers' Brandon Flowers admitted his band actually scrapped an entire album after hearing FOTB!

At the time of publishing, Vampire Weekend is scheduled to launch a new leg of their North American tour May 28 and have not yet notified fans if the shows are still happening amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Koenig isn't the only rockstar to link up with The Tonight Show: At Home Edition, earlier this week The Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger released a 'How To Quarantine' PSA video with the late night show and it made for some good laughs.
