Fleet Foxes Announce Live Vinyl EP For Record Store Day’s Black Friday

Fleet Foxes will release a live EP in support of Record Store Day's Black Friday sales event, on November 24, 2017. The limited edition 10-inch vinyl is titled The Electric Lady Session, and features recordings of four songs from a performance at Fordham University's WVUF radio station during a June 13th interview and performance session. The live tracks then received mixing treatment from Beatriz Artola. All four songs are off the band's third studio LP, Crack-Up, which dropped this last June to widespread acclaim.
This year's Record Store Day is the tenth year of a running sales event celebrating and supporting indie record stores, with an emphasis on independent record labels. The premise originated in the U.S. with a visit by Metallica at Rasputin Records in San Francisco, but now boasts participation from stores with events organized on every continent except Antarctica. To learn more and find a participating store near you, visit the Record Store Day website.
Fleet Foxes are hot off the North American leg of an extensive promotional tour following Crack-Up's release. Next up are stops in the U.K., continental Europe, Australia, and Asia. Crack-Up debuted at number nine on the Billboard Hot 200, and fans are clearly eager to sample the band's newest offering following a six year gap between new music releases that included a three year hiatus from both performing and recording.
