It's the third song to be unveiled from new album 'Crack-Up'

Fleet Foxes have shared a new song, titled ‘If You Need To, Keep Time On Me’.

The folk band are set to release new album ‘Crack-Up’ on June 16. It’s their first album since 2011’s ‘Helplessness Blues’ and their third full-length to date.

‘If You Need To, Keep Time On Me’ follows previously unveiled songs ‘Fool’s Errand’ and ‘Third of May / Ōdaigahara’. Listen to the new track below.

In April, frontman Robin Pecknold gave ‘Crack-up’ test pressings to 20 fans who have commented the most on his Instagram page during the run-up to the album.

“You all are the 20 most frequent commenters on this page, and you’ve been really funny / kind / supportive through this whole process of writing, recording, and now releasing ‘Crack-Up,’” he captioned an image of one of the test pressings.

“As a way of expressing my gratitude for that, we’ve made 20 test pressings of the Crack-Up 2x vinyl LP and all signed them. This is the only way anyone anywhere could get this particular thing.”

The album was co-produced by frontman Robin Pecknold and guitarist Skyler Skjelset. It was recorded between July 2016 and January 2017 in various studios around the US.

The album’s title was partially inspired by a F Scott Fitzgerald essay of the same name.

The album’s tracklisting is:

1 ‘I Am All That I Need / Arroyo Seco / Thumbprint Scar’
2 ‘Cassius’
3 ‘Naiads, Cassadies’
4 ‘Kept Woman’
5 ‘Third of May / Ōdaigahara’

8 ‘On Another Ocean (January / June)’
