One (Blake's Got a New Face)

By |

Whenever a song is named after a person, listeners and critics alike want to know if it was based on somebody specific. Who was this supposed Blake with a brand new face? “Well, I had the melody long before the lyrics,” Ezra Koenig, Vampire Weekend’s lead singer, explained. “And we had all sorts of stupid stuff that we were considering. And then I met this friend of my girlfriend’s named Blake, someone she went to high school with, and it kind of just popped into my head after meeting him. So there is an actual person named Blake.”
