Today, on the Autumnal Equinox, Fleet Foxes released their fourth studio album Shore. The bright and hopeful album, released via Anti-, is available to stream now and is set for a February 5th street date. In addition to the album, a 16 mm road movie of the same name by Kersti Jan Werdal that showcases the landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. The album is available to view at https://fleetfoxes.co.
Shore was recorded before and during quarantine with the help of recording and production engineer Beatriz Artola. The album was initially inspired by frontman Robin Pecknold’s musical heroes such as Arthur Russell, Nina Simone, Sam Cooke, Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guebrou and more who, in his experience, celebrated life in the face of death.
“I see “shore” as a place of safety on the edge of something uncertain, staring at Whitman’s waves reciting ‘death,’” commented Pecknold. “Tempted by the adventure of the unknown at the same time you are relishing the comfort of the stable ground beneath you. This was the mindset I found, the fuel I found, for making this album.”
