Fleet Foxes have announced their new live album, A Very Lonely Solstice.
The 13-track career-spanning collection was recorded during a livestream in December 2020 at Brooklyn’s St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church. The forthcoming album will be out Friday alongside a filmed recording. That recording is out at 3:00 p.m. followed by a Q&A with Robin Pecknold, hosted by Elia Einhorn, for YouTube Premium subscribers.
A Very Lonely Solstice was originally broadcasted as a livestream ont he winter solstice of 2020, just days after New York declared a state of emergency in response to COVID-19. Frontman Robin Pecknold says the set was “me by myself on the longest night of the year… honouring the loneliness of 2020 with a nylon string and some songs new and old.”
