Watch Fleet Foxes’ new “Fool’s Errand” video

Fleet Foxes shared a new song from their upcoming album Crack-Up called “Fool’s Errand” last night. They have now shared a music video for that track. It is directed by Robin Pecknold’s brother, Sean Pecknold and was shot on 35 mm film, and features art direction by Adi Goodrich. The video shows interpretive dancing, nature imagery, and, at the end, a wolf. Watch it below and find Sean Pecknold’s statement on the visual below that. The Pecknold brothers also collaborated on the videos for Helplessness Blues’ “Grown Ocean” and “The Shrine/An Argument,” as well as the Crack-Up album trailer.

Crack-Up will arrive June 16th via Nonesuch.

Sean Pecknold:

“Fool’s Errand” couldn’t have been shot on anything but 35mm film. The timeline was tight, but shooting on film made us focus and shoot only what we absolutely needed for the edit. There is still nothing like the look of film and it matches the sonic quality of the Foxes music quite well.
