Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues (May 3)

Quote:
Fleet Foxes have confirmed that they will "definitely" be releasing their second album in 2010.

The band are currently holed away in Seattle working on material for the follow-up to the their critically acclaimed self-titled 2008 debut.

"We're working on stuff every day," singer and guitarist Robin Pecknold told Pitchfork. "We're done touring now until we're done with the next record. So now is when we're writing and starting to record the new album."

Despite the success of their first album, Pecknold revealed that the new album had taken a different direction than the first.

"I listened to the first record again, and I was kind of nonplussed," he explained. "Some of it I was into, or I could see why we did that at that time - but some of it we would just never do again."

As for the new songs, Pecknold said he thinks they’re "less poppy" then those on the first record.

"There are definitely super-upbeat songs that are being worked on for the new record. But as a whole, it's probably a little bit less upbeat," he said. "When I was listening to it [their debut], I felt like I didn't get a chance to breathe. There was a lot of 'too upbeat'. I guess people think we're already kind of a mellow band, so maybe the next album will be pretty boring to most people."

Not ones to rush things, it will probably later on in 2010 that the album will surface, but he did confirm that it would be released next year: "Definitely 2010. There's no way it wouldn't be next year. But probably the early second half, or mid-second half, stocking-stuffer style."

Been working for nine months on something that will sell for 3.99 on Amazon MP3. That's about the price of a whoopie cushion.

I think this was the last update from Nov 19

Two lead vocals left, one harmony part, then remixing. Finally happy with it, I think.

I think he said his argument was that you can't put a price on music. Some hippie philosophy.

Re: Fleet Foxes - Untitled

I feel more inclined to buy mp3 albums at $4-$5. $10 or more is just too much. But $1 a song is fair. Which is funny because usually there are more than 10 tracks on an album.

To reiterate, I don't have a problem with the 4 dollar album thing at all. Music has emotional value but no inherent cash value.
Quote:
When an album is done, it stops being a musical project and becomes and economic product, and I have no opinion on what the best price is.

AmazonMP3s responses

Quote:
@fleetfoxes 1) Sweet burn. 2) That's a little expensive for a whoopie cushion: http://amzn.to/fIfTNS
Quote:
@fleetfoxes 3) You'd have a hard time finding people more excited than our editors are to hear your new record.
Quote:
@fleetfoxes 4) Our $3.99 deals generally only last a day, which makes it like happy hour.
Quote:
@fleetfoxes 6) Let's be friends?
Quote:
@fleetfoxes It is funny. We bought your last album on vinyl, which is about even with a rubber chicken and some Groucho glasses, cost-wise.

current twitter bio:
Bandmember Robin Pecknold embarrasses his bandmates, self, while finishing (starting?) an album (or maybe it's a 7'').

Re: Fleet Foxes - Untitled

agreed... they had a lot of hype and were recommended... i listened, loathed, and wrote off alot of other bands with that aesthetic, which were actually worth listening to.
