Fleet Foxes new album “Crack-Up” will be released in June!

By on March 9, 2017

On June 16 this year, Fleet Foxes release their long-awaited third album Crack-Up (Nonesuch Records). Crack-Up released six years after the last album Helplessness Blues (2011) and almost a decade after they released their first, self-titled album, Fleet Foxes (2008).

The band has now released the song “Third of May / Õdaigahara” from the album, which is nearly nine minutes long song driven by piano, electric twelve-string guitar, string quartet along with the group’s traditional sparkling and fizzy harmonies. As a supplement, the band has also gone out with tour dates that include their first gig in North America since 2011. Even now, it is possible to pre-order the album via iTunes and Nonesuch.com.

Crack-Up contains 11st songs that are all written by Robin Pecknold and also produced by him and Skyler Skjelset, which is his band -and childhood friend for a long time. The album was recorded at various studios around the United States between July 2016 and January 2017; Electric Lady Studio, Sear Sound, The Void, Rare Book Room, Avast and The Unkown. Phil Ek mixed the album at Sear Sound, and mastered ago by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound. Fleet Foxes consist of Robin Pecknold (vocalist, multi-instrumentalist), Skyler Skjelset (multi-instrumentalist, vocalist), Casey Wescott (multi-instrumentalist, vocalist), Christian Wargo (multi-instrumentalist, vocalist) and Morgan Henderson (multi-instrumentalist).

Fleet Foxes self-titled debut album was a huge international footprint on the musical landscape. They got Uncut’s first Music Award Prize and topped several “Best of” lists including Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Albums of the 2000’s and Pitchfork’s 50 Best Albums of 2008. The album has gone gold in North America and platinum in the UK and Australia. The sequel, Helplessness Blues, was met with the same enthusiasm and debuted at # 4 on Billboard’s Top 200, went gold in the UK and also received a Grammy nomination.
