Fleet Foxes will return June 16th with Crack-Up, the follow-up to 2011's Helplessness Blues. The band announced the album on Tuesday and released "Third of May/Ōdaigahara," which shows that their harmony-heavy folk rock remains intact.

"Third of May/Ōdaigahara" is an ambitious composition with string orchestration, multiple voices rising in unison and marked shifts from loud to quiet. At several points during the nearly nine-minute song, the pounding piano falls to leave a lone singer, who sounds fragile and isolated. The band roars back to full volume, but in the final minutes of the song are voiceless and beat-less – just a soothing wash of strings.

'White Winter Hymnal' is an all-time favourite (and other songs that I have heard from them have generally been good) so I am glad to see that they have new music out this year!

An almost 9 minute long comeback single is certainly brave *.* but no bad thing to my ears as this is rather magnificent. heart.gif I love that it starts out sounding pretty epic, then grinds to a halt a bit and finishes off with those gorgeous strings. Lovely lil journey. Excited for more!
