Robin Pecknold brings light to the bleakest of winters with Fleet Foxes' 'A Very Lonely Solstice', a 13-track career-spanning collection recorded in December 2020, at Brooklyn, NY's St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church.

'A Very Lonely Solstice' captures a poignant moment in time. The recording was originally broadcasted as a live-stream event on the winter solstice of 2020, just days after New York declared a state of emergency tightening restrictions again in response to increasing COVID-19 cases. Pecknold describes the set as 'me by myself on the longest night of the year... honouring the loneliness of 2020 with a nylon string and some songs new and old.' Fans worldwide tuned in while quarantined at home, finding solace and a sense of community in a period of extreme isolation. Much of the performance showcases a solo focus on Pecknold who offers up acoustic arrangements of fan-favourite songs spanning Fleet Foxes' catalogue. Selections cover all four of the band's studio albums, including their 2008 self-titled debut album ('Tiger Mountain Peasant Song') to 2011's 'Helplessness Blues' ('Blue Spotted Tail') and 2017's 'Crack-Up' ('If You Need To, Keep Time On Me'), all the way to their latest release, 'Shore'. Resistance Revival Chorus joins Pecknold on 'Shore' tracks 'Wading in Waist-High Water' and 'Can I Believe You.' Also featured: a cover of Nina Simone's 'In the Morning' and a rearrangement of the traditional 'Silver Dagger.'
