A couple of weeks ago, Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold emerged from his long musical absence to share a new solo track, a cover of the Five Keys’ “Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind.” That and some activity on the official Fleet Foxes Facebook page gave us hope that new material might be on the way, and it looks like we were right. It’s not a new Fleet Foxes album or anything — at least not yet — but Pecknold has announced via Facebook that he’ll be opening for Joanna Newsom early next year on her tour supporting Divers, and he’ll be playing a set of all-new material. Which is exciting! Read his full note below.
Very excited / honored to say that I’ll be opening some dates for Joanna Newsom early next year, playing an all-new solo set. I’ll be on both the European and the West Coast legs of her tour, in late winter / early spring. Hope to see some of you guys out there!
Robin Pecknold x Joanna Newsom is a pretty perfect bill for fans of beautiful folk music.
