Fleet Foxes unveil new album and song

Fleet Foxes have been using the social networks to keep us up to date on their new album over the past 18 months, saying they’ve started, claiming it’s finished, retracting that claim, claiming they’re re-writing and basically keeping us all very unsure about its actual progress.

Well, we now have some definitive news from their Facebook page. Not only a release date, but a new track and title.

So, it’s out on May 3rd. It’s going to be a long 4 months to wait for this one. The above Facebook update is a bit ambiguous, but it appears that both the new track and the album itself is called ‘Helplessness Blues’ (that is so them).

Hear the track below, and check out their new tour dates here.
