After a 6-year hiatus, Fleet Foxes
returned last month with a nine-minute song
called "Third Of May / Odaigahara," which also came with an album announcement. Crack-Up
will be dropping on June 16th and Fleet Foxes just released a teaser video with snippets of various tracks from the upcoming album.
The video is entirely in black-and-white and shows rehearsal footage of the band in Seattle, shot by frontman Robin Pecknold's brother, Sean Pecknold. There's something so dark and relaxing about the trailer and it's paired with snippets of new music from the upcoming album Crack-Up
, including the lead single. So far, the songs sound pretty promising and they all have that bluesy, folk richness from Fleet Foxes of vocal harmonies, strings and percussion.
