Fleet Foxes auction off new album and unveil new track

After a natural disaster strikes, we often see musicians helping out. Whether it’s the Foo Fighters playing a show in Christchurch, Powderfinger releasing a B-side or Bono putting his face on every charity campaign he can find.

Fleet Foxes are the latest band to help charity. The band have placed a test vinyl pressing of their second album Helplessness Blues on ebay, with all money going to the Japan earthquake and tsunami relief fund.

The album isn’t released until May 3 and to say it’s highly anticipated would be an understatement. There are just over 5 days left of bidding, and the total is  already $2,125.

Speaking of Fleet Foxes, a new song from Helplessness Blues has been released on British radio. Titled Battery Kinzie, it is everything you would expect from a Fleet Foxes song. Simply stunning.
