Late final fall, Joanna requested me if we had any reveals in Los Angeles arising that she may drop in on as a shock opener to check out some new songs. We didn’t have something deliberate till August on the Hollywood Bowl with My Morning Jacket, however that is the best residing songwriter we’re speaking about, perhaps one of the best musician since, like, J.S. Bach, so me and the FF workforce spent the previous few months planning this for her.

The venue wanted to be sufficiently small that it could promote out immediately as a Fleet Foxes–solely present, regal sufficient to deserve a Joanna look, and permitting of us to be onsite for a number of days of each rehearsal and the development of the flowery flower preparations surrounding the stage and venue. I got here up with this “Spring Recital” conceit simply to deflect consideration from the “particular visitor” half, and I requested my dad and Daniel Rossen to be concerned, giving it a form of Final Waltz feeling, an impression that anybody would possibly present up.

We had customized merchandise made, our collaborators the Westerlies made horn preparations for Joanna off of voice memos, my brother filmed the occasion…. I’m so fortunate and grateful that the touring group we’ve constructed was in a position to gracefully accommodate this request of hers and make it one of the best it may probably be, one thing actually particular for the 1,200 devoted individuals who trusted us when shopping for tickets. Placing this present collectively was the respect of my lifetime! Thanks, Joanna!
