Fleet Foxes have also released a one minute 37 second album teaser featuring footage shot during the band’s recent Seattle rehearsals paired with snippets from select album tracks including “Third of May / Ōdaigahara”, the first track released from the band’s long awaited, third album due out June 16 via Nonesuch Records. Crack- Up comes six years after the 2011 release of Helplessness Blues and nearly a decade since the band’s 2008 self- titled debut.
“On ‘Third of May / Ōdaigahara,’ Fleet Foxes show that they can open themselves to an expanding world without losing themselves in the process.” - Pitchfork
"A sprawling, nearly nine-minute track, it features piano, electric twelve-string guitar, string quartet, and, of course, Fleet Foxes’ pristine harmonies." - Consequence of Sound
"The track, in typical Foxes fashion, begins as a warm and inviting acoustic guitar- and piano-driven jaunt before taking a turn into expansive, even psychedelic territory." - Paste
"It sounds like this album is gonna be worth the wait." - Brooklyn Vegan
