New Release: Fleet Foxes – Crack-Up / Third of May / Ōdaigahara

We’re delighted to bring you the news that on June 16th, Fleet Foxes will return with the release of Crack-Up, their long awaited and highly anticipated third album

Crack-Up comes six years after the 2011 release of Helplessness Blues and nearly a decade since the band’s 2008 self-titled debut

In addition, the much-missed five-piece have unveiled the first single, in the form of Third of May / Ōdaigahara, a nearly nine-minute epic, powered by piano and electric twelve-string guitar, string quartet, and the group’s stunning trademark harmonies

Take a listen below…
