    Robin Pecknold covered Harry Nilsson's "Don't Forget Me" on his brother's short film A Study in Time Travel, which was brought to attention by a Reddit user. In a response to another Reddit user, Pecknold revealed he is working on new Fleet Foxes music, saying "My plan is to record and tour and then go back to finish after so not soon."

    According to Pitchfork, "He (Pecknold) added that Neal Morgan, who's been drumming on Pecknold's solo work, will join Fleet Foxes for the new material. Speaking about the new songs, he added that they have a "different vibe from both [the early material] and 2008-2011 FF." He elaborated, "please trust my time-fortified discernment as I endeavor to scrub the soundfield of BS and empty sonic reference.""

    In the latter, aforementioned Reddit thread, Pecknold also explained his theory on the lack of a hyphen in Radiohead's new album title, "My current theory is that there shouldn't be a hyphen: the title is actually (and sneakily) a complete SVO sentence. Moon is the subject, Shaped the verb, and Pool is the object here. A moon has "shaped" (influenced, formed, guided by its beauty) an individual named Pool (Paul? McCartney). Perhaps Thom and Paul had a nice night drinking wine under a full moon and the experience shaped Paul and Thom wanted to honor the evening with this title. This is all conjecture but that's where I'm at with it rn"
