When Robin Pecknold, the lead singer of the critically acclaimed band Fleet Foxes, decided to stop touring and pursue a degree at Columbia University in 2013, fans weren't sure what to expect. And while Robin did keep his music career somewhat going in the years that followed, he also did a lot of other things, including hiking the base of Mount Everest, and taking up surfing.
This year marks the return of Fleet Foxes that a lot of music fans have been waiting for. Their album Crack-Up came out in June. It's their first record in six years, and it may be their most complex and ambitious.
Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes talks to Tom Power about returning to making music.
