Fleet Foxes are releasing a new vinyl box set, First Collection 2006 - 2009, on November 9 via Sub Pop (except in Europe, where it's out via Nonesuch). It collects their debut album, their early EPs, and some rarities. Now they have shared one of those rarities, "Isles," which was originally released as a B-side to "White Winter Hymnal" in the U.K. in 2008 and has not been officially released outside of Europe. Listen below.

First Collection 2006 - 2009 includes the band's self-titled debut full-length on 12-inch vinyl and the Sun Giant EP on 10-inch vinyl, as well as the first vinyl releases of The Fleet Foxes EP on 10-inch and B-sides & Rarities EP on 10-inch, both of which were originally self-released and very limited edition. It includes a 32-page book. The box set will also be released on CD and digitally. Below is a tracklist again.

Under the Radar was the first nationally distributed print magazine to interview Fleet Foxes, back in 2008 when they had just signed to Sub Pop and hadn't released the Sun Giant EP yet, let alone their debut album. Revisit that article here.

Fleet Foxes' last album, their third, was last year's Crack-Up, on Nonesuch. 

Crack-Up was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2017.
