The band that gave the world one of 2008's most memorable records is about to return with more sweet harmonies and delicate guitars. Fleet Foxes' long-awaited and highly anticipated follow-up to its self-titled debut is titled Helplessness Blues, and is due out on May 3 from Sub Pop.

Fleet Foxes also announced today that the band will head out for its first tour in two years. The first gig is in Vancouver at the Vogue Theater on April 30.

Sub Pop has the title cut from the record at its website for streaming and free download. You can also hear and download the song by mousing-over the album cover below.
