Fleet Foxes‘ Robin Pecknold debuted a new song during Vote Ready, A Concert For Voter Registration, a livestream event organized by Live From Out There, Fort William Artist Management, and the voter registration non-profit HeadCount. Backed by Angel Olsen drummer Joshua Jaeger and Holy Hive’s Paul Spring, his three-song set also included a cover of Arthur Russell’s ‘I Never Get Lonesome’ and the Roches’ ‘Hammond Song’ by the Roches.
