Fleet Foxes have provided a progress update on the status of their new album.

In an Instagram post from four weeks ago, Robin Pecknold described the alum as “kind of crazy / vast so working on ‘putting babies to sleep / living my truth’ palliative solo album on off days”


Overnight, though, the band updated their Facebook cover photo with Hiroshi Hamaya’s “Eruption at Mount Tokachi, Hokkaido Prefecture, Japan, 1962”.


In the comments thread, when asked if a new album was coming, the band replied, “Alllllmost done.”



This will be the first new album of studio material from the band since 2011’s Helplessness Blues.


The December 2016 issue of Uncut is now on sale in the UK – featuring our cover story on Pink Floyd, plus a free CD compiled by Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner that includes tracks by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Sleaford Mods, Yo La Tengo, Can. Elsewhere in the issue, there’s TheDamned, Julia Holter, Desert Trip, Midlake, C86, David Pajo, Nils Frahm and the New Classical, David Bowie, Tim Buckley, REM, Norah Jones, Morphine, The Pretenders and more plus 140 reviews
