News & Reviews

  • Fleet Foxes will release a special limited-edition collection to mark the tenth anniversary of their debut album, entitled First Collection 2006–2009, on Nonesuch in Europe and Sub Pop for the rest of the world, on November 9. The package features content spanning the early days of Fleet Foxes' career, including the self-titled full-length debut album on 12" vinyl, as well as the Sun Giant EP on 10" vinyl and the first vinyl releases of both the very limited-edition, previously only self-released The Fleet Foxes EP on 10" and B-Sides & Rarities on 10". The special edition will also be released on CD and digitally. Watch a trailer featuring archival footage here.

  • Fleet Foxes have released a short film for their Crack-Up album opener, "I Am All That I Need / Arroyo Seco / Thumbprint Scar," directed by Sean Pecknold, with art direction and production design by Adi Goodrich and choreography by Steve Reker. The film was shot on 35mm film in southern California, creating a look that feels like an old Technicolor movie, with everything hand-made and in-camera. WeTransfer commissioned and helped produce the video. Watch it here.

  • About This Album

    A very limited number of Fleet Foxes' special-edition 10" EP, released for Record Store Day's Black Friday event on November 24, 2017, is available in the Nonesuch Store. The EP features four songs, thoughtfully selected from a WFUV session recorded at the historic Electric Lady Studio in New York on June 13, 2017, days before the band's new album, Crack-Up, was released. Side A of the vinyl includes "Cassius, -" and "- Naiads, Cassadies" while Side B includes "Mearcstapa" and "On Another Ocean (January / June)." Each pair is recorded and cut as one long track to reflect the intentional fluidity between these songs, on both the album and in live performance.

    WFUV (90.7 FM) has been a noncommercial, member-supported public media service of Fordham University in New York for 70 years. WFUV has received national recognition for its award-winning weekday format of adult album alternative music, award-winning local news and sports, and a diverse weekend lineup. Electric Lady Studios is the oldest working and thriving recording studio in New York City. Made famous by Jimi Hendrix and classic 70s sessions with The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, and Patti Smith, among others, the studio maintains its reputation as hallowed grounds for recorded music.
