Watch: Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold Performs New Song

First new music in 5 years from singer

Fleet Foxes have been on hiatus for an undisclosed amount of time, following the release of their critically acclaimed 2011 album Helplessness Blues. Lead singer Robin Pecknold shared with fans his intentions to go back to school which lead him to take a break from the band.

Pecknold has since embarked on a tour with folk singer Joanna Newsom in which he’s been performing solo. A fan captured a recent performance of Pecknold playing a previously unheard track. It’s not clear whether this is just a solo song, or something intended for the full band.

Take a listen in the player above.
