Robin Pecknold gives Fleet Foxes update on Facebook

fleetfoxesIt’s all been rather quiet in Fleet Foxes‘ world since the release of ‘Helplessness Blues‘ in 2011, but frontman Robin Pecknold has broken that silence with a brief update on Facebook where he reveals he has ‘gone back to school’.

“For anyone who’s curious, this is a short Fleet Foxes update – been a while,” the post reads. “So, after the last round of touring, I decided to go back to school. I never got an undergraduate degree, and this felt like the right time to both see what that was about and to try something new after a while in the touring / recording lifestyle.”

“I moved to New York and enrolled at Columbia, and I’ve mostly been doing that, but I’m working on songs and excited for whatever happens next musically, even if it’s down the line.”

‘Helplessness Blues’ proved to be one of Live4ever’s essential releases of 2011, described as having sounds which will ‘outlive generations’.
