Fleet Foxes return with their fourth album SHORE, which radiates a crisp folk-rock sound. The band has crafted another musically adventurous album that is warm and full of grace. The record features the singles "Can I Believe You", "Sun Blind", "Wading In Waste-High Water" and "Featherweight".
Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold shares, "SHORE feels like a relief, like you'd feel when your feet finally hit sand after getting caught in a riptide. It's a celebration of life in the face of death, honoring our lost musical heroes, from David Berman to John Prine to Judee Sill to Bill Withers, embracing the joy and solace they brought to our lives and honoring their memory. SHORE is an object levitating between the magnetic fields of the past and the future." Robin Pecknold began writing Shore in September 2018 and recorded the album between September 2019 and September 2020, including during the COVID-19 pandemic.
SHORE was released digitally in it's entirety on the fall equinox (9/22/20) alongside an album length Super-16mm landscape film captured and edited in Washington State by the filmmaker Kersti Jan Werdal. The album was recorded in upstate New York at Aaron Dessner's Long Pond Studio, in Paris at Studios St. Germain, in Los Angeles at the legendary Vox, in Long Island City at Diamond Mine, and New York City's Electric Lady.
Fleet Foxes' self-titled debut made a profound impact on the international musical landscape, earning them Uncut's first ever Music Award Prize and a spot in Rolling Stone's 100 Best Albums of the 2000's. The follow-up album Helplessness Blues was met with the same critical praise as it's predecessor and earned them a GRAMMY nomination. Both Fleet Foxes and Helplessness Blues remain as popular as ever with over 2 million records sold, 50% of their sales directly come from vinyl purchases.
