    Fleet Foxes' Special Edition "First Collection 2006–2009" Out Now

    Fleet Foxes' special limited-edition collection marking the tenth anniversary of their debut album, entitled First Collection 2006–2009, is out now on Nonesuch in Europe and Sub Pop for the rest of the world. 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". In addition to its musical offerings, the release will feature a 32-page booklet including show flyers, lyrics, and artwork from the period. The special edition is also out on CD and on all digital platforms. Order and listen now here.

    The Sunday Times of London, naming it a Must-Have Reissue, says: "The band's country, folk and West Coast pop songs and storyteller lyrics—which acted like a close-harmony love letter in musical form to a pastoral American idyll that possibly never existed—arrived as if from another era, triggering nostalgic swoons in critics and end-of-year top spots."

    It's "timeless folk," says Uncut. "A decade on it's fascinating to observe the evolution of their sound. That first LP sounded other-worldly at the time. It sounded like nothing else. Listening afresh, what's striking is the looseness of the playing. The songs are fragile. Everything is at the service of the voices, and the singing is magical. The sound of the Fleet Foxes blossomed over a short period. It wasn't an accident. They got there by embracing timelessness."

    "The songs are strong, hinting at future shapeshifting abilities," says Mojo, naming the collection its Vinyl Package of the Month. "Full sonic prestidigitation, that wonder of voices magnified by reverb, would be next."

    "The music is invariably wonderful," exclaims Record Collector in a four-star review. "Their pristine eponymous debut remains unimpeachable 10 years on."

    Fleet Foxes' debut album made a tremendous impact on the international musical scene, topping numerous "best of" lists, including Rolling Stone's 100 Best Albums of the 2000's and Pitchfork's 50 Best Albums of 2008, and earned the band Uncut's inaugural Music Award Prize. Fleet Foxes is certified Gold in North America and Platinum in both the UK and Australia.

    Fleet Foxes' most recent release was the critically acclaimed full-length, Crack-Up, released June 2017 on Nonesuch following a six-year hiatus. Additionally, the band sold out notable venues including Red Rocks Amphitheatre and the Hollywood Bowl, performed on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert as well as CBS This Morning, and earned year-end recognition from Esquire, Consequence of Sound, Paste, Uproxx, Vulture, and more.

    Pianist Jeremy Denk's new album, c. 1300–c. 2000, is due February 1, 2019. The album spans seven centuries of music by twenty-four different composers, from Guillaume de Machaut to György Ligeti. "A piano recital covering 700 years of music: by most accepted definitions, that ought to be not just an oxymoron but an impossibility," says the Telegraph. "But the usual barriers fall whenever Jeremy Denk is at the keyboard ... Quite exhilarating." Watch a video of Binchois's Triste Plaisir here and pre-order the album to download the piece now.
