Fleet Foxes are releasing a new album, Crack-Up, on June 16 via Nonesuch. Previously they had shared the album’s first single, the near nine-minute long “Third of May / Ōdaigahara” and shared a trailer that features snippets of various songs from the album. Earlier today they shared another Crack-Up song, “Fool’s Errand.” Now the song has a video directed by frontman Robin Pecknold’s brother, Sean Pecknold, with art direction by Adi Goodrich. The video was shot on 35mm film and thus has a cinematic quality. It features interpretative dancing by the ocean and on cliffs with various costumed female dancers. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Crack-Up is the band’s third album, the long-awaited follow-up to 2011’s Helplessness Blues. Frontman Robin Pecknold wrote all of the album’s 11 songs and co-produced it with his bandmate (and childhood friend) Skyler Skjelset. The album was recorded from July 2016 to January 2017 at various studios around America: Electric Lady Studios, Sear Sound, The Void, Rare Book Room, Avast, and The Unknown. Phil Ek mixed the album at Sear Sound and Greg Calbi mastered it at Sterling Sound. Josh Tillman was in the band in the Helplessness Blues era but had long since left to focus on his Father John Misty project. The current Fleet Foxes lineup is Robin Pecknold (vocals, multi-instrumentalist), Skyler Skjelset (multi-instrumentalist, vocals), Casey Wescott (multi-instrumentalist, vocals), Christian Wargo (multi-instrumentalist, vocals), and Morgan Henderson (multi-instrumentalist).
