Fleet Foxes to headline Newport Folk Festival, the band’s first US performance in six years

on February 01, 2017, 11:45am

Fleet Foxes will return later this year with a new album called Ylajali. In support, the Robin Pecknold-led outfit has begun to line up summer tour dates, including a headlining appearance at the legendary Newport Folk Festival. It marks Fleet Foxes’ first confirmed US performance in six years, though many more dates are on the way.

There’s still no word on a release date for Ylajali, though yesterday Pecknold wrote on Instagram, “Songs soon! Out of my hands now.” He previously said the album consists of 11 tracks spanning “55ish” minutes in length and described the music as “some folk-soul songs.”

Ylajali serves as the long-awaited follow-up to 2011’s Helplessness.
