Sub Pop will release the band's Illusion EP on March 27. Download the track, "People in Her Mind," off of the EP below in exchange for your email address below.
Meanwhile catch Lost in the Trees in NYC at Housing Works on Friday, February 17.
In other Fleet Foxes news, a tumblr has arisen called Fleet Foxes Sing, where a group of people cover songs like James Blake's "The Wilhelm Scream" and Madonna's "Like A Virgin" in the style of Fleet Foxes. It's not nearly as funny or convincing as Bon Joviver though.
Father John Misty is one of two new Fleet Foxes-related projects signed to Sub Pop. The other is Poor Moon.
