Fleet Foxes Preview Their New Album And World Tour With A Serene Teaser Video

Fleet Foxes are doing this whole album rollout thing right. If it’s possible to be hyped at the idea of open-vista swirly acoustic music, then Robin Pecknold and crew are doing everything in their power to ratchet that up. After sharing a single and teasing bits and pieces of the new album on Instagram, the long-dormant festival folkies have shared a teaser video that seems to play snippets of all of the songs on the album.

Our immediate take: This is definitely a Fleet Foxes album. Crack-Up contains loads of vocal harmonies, beautiful strings and percussion that sounds like spurs jangling. If you were ever into this band, then this new album is that sh*t you do like.

In addition to the album teaser, the band have added more tour dates to their already jam-packed schedule. The band will make up for lost time by playing all over Europe and North America between now and the end of the year. The extra North American dates will make it easier to see the band whenever, but hearing the songs first at these intimate warm-up sets will still probably be worth it.
