Fleet Foxes released a new single and its affiliated music video on Friday with “Fool’s Errand.” The new song is the second track released so far from their highly anticipated upcoming album, Crack-Up, which is due out next month on June 16.
“Fool’s Errand” follows “Third of May/Ōdaigahara,” which was the first song released from the upcoming album back in March. The new track is a little more fitting for radio, however, coming in at a more manageable four minutes and 52 seconds, which is three minutes shorter than its lengthy predecessor. The video, which can be watched below, was directed by member Robin Pecknold’s older brother Sean. Viewers are taken to a rather picturesque coastal setting, where a mix of colorfully-dressed dancers put on some interesting but lively performances.
Fleet Foxes will be heading out on an extensive world tour starting next week, and will remain on the road until early December. Highlight performances on the upcoming run include two nights at Brooklyn's outdoor Prospect Park Bandshell on Aug. 1-2, as well as a concert at Denver's Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sept. 27. A handful of tickets to select shows on their upcoming world tour are still available, and can be purchased by clicking here.
