Fleet Foxes have a new album, Helplessness Blues, coming out on May 5th—and they’ll be stopping by the Tower Theatre on Saturday, May 21st, while on tour in support of the album. Complete ticket information for the show can be found here. You can also stream the entire album over at NPR Music here. In their review of the album, NPR Music says:
Still making intricate folk songs with otherworldly harmonies, Fleet Foxes’ members clearly wrestled with the fear of repeating themselves in making Helplessness Blues. Ultimately, they wind up letting go and doing what they do best, and the results are outstanding.
Fleet Foxes are playing the Tower Theatre on Saturday, May 21st. Their new album, Helplessness Blues, is being released on May 3rd. Below, check out their new video for the song “Grown Ocean.” And if you’ve yet to download the gorgeous “Helplessness Blues,” you can do so below.
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.
