Fleet Foxes Announce New Album, Share Single & Detail International Tour

Today is a day Fleet Foxes fans have been waiting years for as the band has officially announced the follow-up to 2011’s Helplessness Blues, released its first single and detailed a series of upcoming tour dates. Fleet Foxes will issue Crack-Up via Nonesuch Records on June 16. The new LP features 11 songs written by Robin Pecknold and was produced by Pecknold and Syler Skjelset.

Our first taste of Crack-Up is the nearly nine-minute epic ““Third of May / Ōdaigahara.” Watch a lyric video for the track which can be downloaded instantly for those pre-ordering the album:
