It’s hard to believe that the Fleet Foxes haven’t put an album out in almost five years.
Then again, when you’re going to school, it’s hard to be a global superstar between semesters.
Although many have suggested the Seattle band’s frontman Robin Pecknold has become the J.D. Salinger of indie rock, the fact is, the singer/songwriter has been going to school at Columbia and is working on his degree.
However, holiday cheer overtakes the best of us and Pecknold emerged from his studies to bring his fans a cover of The Five Keys’ “Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind.”
A top 25 song from 1956, Pecknold’s rendition was mixed and engineered by Gabe Wax (The War On Drugs) and is available on the singer’s Soundcloud page.
“Happy holidays – here’s a cover,” he wrote on Facebook.
Pecknold has always been a man of few words for social media–his last Facebook message was a little more than a year ago.
