Fleet Foxes - "Battery Kinzie"


Last month to the pleasure of music enthusiasts everywhere, Fleet Foxes announced their forthcoming Helplessness Blues and released the title track for free, their first since their's highly acclaimed eponymous debut effort. BBC Radio One's very own Zane Lowe has just premiered a new cut from the album on his show, called “Battery Kinzie.”. It's a bit more upbeat than the first single, but still displaying that signature Fleet Foxes sound, rich in folk and Americana, Robin Pecknold's soaring harmonies grand enough to fill an entire stadium.

Helplessness Blues comes out May 3rd via Sub Pop, and if it's anything like the first it will be revered as one of the greatest 2011 has to offer.
