To celebrate yesterday’s release of Helplessness Blues, Fleet Foxes have made the album’s closer ‘Grown Ocean’ available for free online.
This is a gesture of large generosity, considering the unbelievable quality of this song. To release the stand-out track on an already fantastic album is pretty good of them.
But we already known where Robin Pecknold stands when it comes to music’s value, thanks to NME’s very insightful article last month. Nahhhhtt.
So, if, for some crazy reason, you have ignored this album, give ‘Grown Ocean’ a listen, and you’ll beg for more. Amazon will be happy to oblige, though Pecknold would try to talk you out of paying for it.
