On a cold winter day comes an announcement and new song from Fleet Foxes. It’s fitting too, as I’ve always felt like their music calls for a wintry backdrop. The new album is titled Helplessness Blues and is getting a release on May 3rd from Sup Pop. The release of the twelve-track album will coincide with the band’s first North American tour dates since August 2009 followed by a string of UK and European dates.
The new song is available below and is the albums title track. Enjoy!
Beginning Tuesday, February 1st at 9:00 AM Pacific time, tickets can be purchased online at Fleet Foxes dot com. Ticket prices will vary. Fleet Foxes pre-sale tickets are available while supplies last.
