    Fleet Foxes updated their Facebook cover photo yesterday, and a commenter asked "New album? New album? New Album?" To which the band replied, "Alllllmost done". The new photo is Hiroshi Hamaya's historic photographic "Eruption at Mount Tokachi, Hokkaido Prefecture, Japan, 1962".

    Spanish website Binaural reported that the band would be playing their first live show in five years at Bilbao BBK festival in 2017. Principle songwriter Robin Pecknold confirmed the news in a conversation on his Instagram saying, "can't wait! First stop Guggenheim".

    Robin Pecknold has been keeping fans up to date on the process of finishing Fleet Foxes' first record since 2011's Helplessness Blues. He has suggested that the album will be called "The Crack-Up", after the famed F. Scott Fitzgerald short story. He has also suggested that it'll have "a different vibe" than past Foxes album, and that it is "crazy/vast".

    Meanwhile, Pecknold has also been working on recording a solo album and shared snippets on his Instagram.

    Helplessness Blues was the second LP from Fleet Foxes and reached number 4 on the U.S. Billboard 200. This will be the band's first album without drummer Joshua Tillman, aka Father John Misty.
