Fleet Foxes released Crack-Up, their long-awaited third album today, June 16 on Nonesuch Records. Crack-Up comes six years after the 2011 release of Helplessness Blues and nearly a decade since the band’s 2008 self-titled debut.
I first heard the tracks “Third of May” and “Fool’s Errand” on my favorite L.A. radio station KSCN a few weeks back.
As most artists are doing these days, they have pressed a Vinyl LP and we have it for sale. This is a Double Vinyl 2-LP Album. When’s the last time you saw one of those?
