Last year, Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold played a livestream at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church in Brooklyn that he called A Very Lonely Solstice. Fleet Foxes are now releasing the performance as a digital album this Friday (December 10), with vinyl and CD editions to follow in spring 2022 (via Anti-). The concert footage will be available to stream on YouTube on Friday, too. Find the tracklist and cover art for the record below.

A Very Lonely Solstice arrives about week and a half ahead of the December 21 winter solstice, after which the daylight hours will continue to get longer. In addition to performing songs from last year’s Shore and other cuts from the Fleet Foxes catalog, Pecknold reworked the ballad “Silver Dagger” and covers Nina Simone’s “In the Morning” during the set.

Earlier this year, Fleet Foxes shared a video for “I’m Not My Season” recorded during the Solstice performance, which Robin Pecknold followed with a “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert” installment for NPR. Pecknold also appeared on Big Red Machine’s How Long Do You Think It’s Gonna Last? track “Phoenix,” joining them and Anaïs Mitchell to perform it on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert with another number titled “New Auburn.”

    What?, Nina Simone’s “In The Morning”!!!! L.O.L. This great song was written by Barry Gibb and recorded twice by The Bee Gees (1966 and 1972). Please mister Green,do some homework before writing a review of any album.

    He doesn’t write the reviews, numbnuts. He can barely write English or run a decent blog.

    You two guys are dicks. No, he doesn’t write the reviews and only an idiot would think he does. This is a great blog site to get free music, just be happy with that and shut your mouths.
