Robin Pecknold, leader of Fleet Foxes, was living in New York City and halfway through making the latest Fleet Foxes album, when Covid changed everything last Spring. At first, it was a struggle to work on the record, but then – thanks to a lot of time spent driving around in his car – the lyrics for the record started pouring out. On the next World Cafe, Pecknold talks about being creative in tough times, and we hear some live recordings of the songs.
