Have you been wondering why it’s felt like Halloween since the start of quarantine? While Alt Nation (Ch. 36) may not have the answer, they do have something to lift your spirits — Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig will be hosting the latest edition of Inside Tracks, a SiriusXM Home DJ Series, on Wednesday, May 13 at 11am ET.

This time last year, the self-proclaimed Oxford comma skeptics released their most recent album, Father of the Bride, which went on to win the GRAMMY Award for Best Alternative Music Album at the 2019 ceremony. During the special Home DJ Series takeover, Koenig will play some music, share what he’s been listening to, tell quarantine stories, and let fans in on what he and the band have been up to since their big win.

After Koenig’s Inside Tracks special premieres, listeners can catch it again on Wednesday at 9pm ET and Thursday, May 14 at 12pm5pm, and 10pm ET. Hear other episodes of the Home DJ Series hosted by Twenty One Pilots, Bastille, Bishop Briggs, and more On Demand below.

Inside Tracks and Alt Nation are available to SiriusXM subscribers and non-subscribers alike through May 31 as part of our recently extended free streaming access period — see more details here.
