LISTEN: Fleet Foxes drop new single, announce album after six-year hiatus

‘Third of May / Ōdaigahara’ is a nine-minute epic

After six years of silence, indie folk heroes Fleet Foxes have announced album three entitled Crack-Up. 

Crack-Up come after the 2011 release of Helplessness Blues and nearly a decade since Fleet Foxes’ 2008 self-titled debut.

The band have released a single from the album – ‘Third of May / Ōdaigahara’ – a nine-minute epic powered by piano and electric twelve-string guitar, string quartet and the group’s trademark sparkling harmonies.


Sydney punters will have the chance to see the band down under, with four shows to take place at the Opera House as part of Vivid LIVE this May (dates below).

Dopamine’s music editor was at their last Sydney concert at the start of 2012 (also at the Opera house). The insane visuals went down a treat with a buttload of mushrooms.

Crack-Up is available to pre-order now, with ‘Third of May / Ōdaigahara’ as an instant download. Pre-orders also include an exclusive, limited-edition print featuring artwork by Hiroshi Hamaya. Get it here.
