Fleet Foxes are back! This is exciting news right? When everyone heard that they were releasing an album this year, everyone got all excited but this excitement sort of fizzled out as we heard nothing more of it but now Bella Union are giving away one of their new songs, Helplessness Blues, as a free download. Yes, you can own it! For free! It’s utterly beautiful and Fleet Foxes certainly haven’t changed as such, developed: yes, but they have still stuck to their authentic, elegant, folky style that everyone admires and loves. This song has certainly got me severely excited for the album and hoping that they play some shows, maybe even festivals this summer with its release. Fleet Foxes are back, ready to hit the world with another incredible album, I’m pretty sure of it. In fact, scrap that, this stunning track cements it for me. Watch out for the album, watch out carefully for it; you certainly wouldn’t want to miss it, for sure.
