Several years ago, acclaimed record producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, Dave Matthews) produced The Lillywhite Sessions for World Cafe with David Dye. Working at WXPN and Avatar Studios in New York City, some of the sessions he produced included The Pretenders, Dr. Dog, and She & Him. Yesterday—with the release of “Helplessness Blues” (a new song by Fleet Foxes, which you can listen to and download below)—we were reminded of a session that Lillywhite did with Fleet Foxes back in July, 2008.
