Shoreis a collection of 15 new songs fromFleet Foxes.
The album was recorded before and during quarantine in Hudson (NY), Paris, Los Angeles, Long Island City and New York City from September 2018 until September 2020 with the help of recording and production engineerBeatriz Artola.
The fifteen song, fifty-five minute Shore was initially inspired by frontmanRobin Pecknold’s musical heroes such asArthur Russell, Nina Simone, Sam Cooke, Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guebrouand more who, in his experience, celebrated life in the face of death. “I see “shore” as a place of safety on the edge of something uncertain, staring at Whitman’s waves reciting ‘death,’” commentedPecknold. “Tempted by the adventure of the unknown at the same time you are relishing the comfort of the stable ground beneath you. This was the mindset I found, the fuel I found, for making this album.”
