We recorded this video seven years ago. While many things have changed since then, we still enjoy climbing trees, playing in the water and shooting hoops. Happy official start of Summertime, people. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvdATQf6wtw

Hello there, friends, we have a secret to share. We are playing a show in Chicago on July 10 with our friends from Sofar Sounds Chicago and The Balvenie US. The location is secret (seriously, we don't even know where it is), and you can enter for the chance to win two tickets to the evening right here: https://www.sofarsounds.com/comp/thebalveniechi If you have never been to a Sofar show, they are pretty special, and you can get a glimpse of the vibe right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu3JlgO7mGQ And if you have never sampled The Balvenie (particularly the DoubleWood 12), well, now you have something to put on your weekend agenda.

Probably going to play the show at Ribfest Chicago tomorrow shirtless because that's just how we roll.

A New Kind of Universe is out in the world today. We are mighty proud of this one. It's big. It's hopeful. It's a preview of the full record we have coming your way this fall. We hope you will listen on whatever platform you prefer right here: https://song.link/i/1463134144

On Friday, May 31, we’ll be releasing a brand new single for your ears. It’s called “A New Kind of Universe”, and it is an anthem with shouting voices, screaming guitars and soaring horns. We invite you to go to this link on the internet to pre-save the song to your Spotify or Apple Music library: https://ffm.to/anewkindofuniverse XO, FF

We have some exciting announcements for you today, both of which are related to food. 1. This photo was taken before we ate tacos for the Car Con Carne podcast with our pal James VanOsdol. You can listen to our chat and imagine the flavors of those tacos right here: http://carconcarne.com/2019/05/fort-frances/ 2. Some VERY exciting show news: We will be playing Ribfest Chicago. As you may have assumed, you can eat ribs there. You should, however, consider eating them after our set so you can dance and sing. Please circle the date on your calendar of Saturday, June 15 and join us for a special evening. That's it for now, friends. More music coming for your ears soon. XO, FF

If your ears are looking for a podcast, you're in luck. We are happy to share the latest episode from our pals at Underwater Sunshine, which includes performances of A Thousand Years From Now and Ghosts of California. There is also a conversation about going to Lithuania, making a new record, listening to Shaq Diesel and lots of other fun things. Sending a big thank you to James Campion, Adam Duritz and all our friends for a great few days in New York. http://countingcrows.com/uwspodcasts/episode-62-skouts-honor/

Hi people of Facebook, tonight we'll be on Facebook Live with James Van Osdol, host of Car Con Carne, ambassador of Chicago music, and all-around great dude. We'll be in his car, eating food and talking about life. It will not be as stressful as watching Game of Thrones, so tune in somewhere in the neighborhood of 7 pm Central. You can even eat at the same time, so it will feel like we're having dinner together. Unrelated to food: Here's a video of us playing one of the first songs we ever released for Underwater Sunshine: https://youtu.be/rl01sJsRoDw

Oh, hey. It's us again, playing a stripped down version of "A Thousand Years From Now" in a garden in an apartment in the city of New York. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/1U6gRi61jy4

We played a few of our favorite songs in an apartment in New York with our friends at Underwater Sunshine, and our great pal Ehud Lazin captured those songs for you to see. Here's Double Take: https://youtu.be/y_T1DODGtnE

We consulted with futurists. We crunched the numbers. We called the experts. Here is everything that will happen in the next 1000 years: https://youtu.be/dRgn5pNZfmM

We have been lucky to do lots of things, but Friday night at the Bowery Electric for Underwater Sunshine Fest was the most special evening possible. Thank you Lindsay, Katie, Andy, Felipe, Barbara, Ehud, Adam (also thanks for this photo, which I stole from your Instagram), the entire Underwater Sunshine Music Festival family and every single person who came to the show for singing, dancing and reminding us of the magic of music.

As you read this post on the book of faces, you are probably thinking about something far off in the future. We all do it. Most of our minds tend to look far out on the horizon. We try to predict what will happen next week, next month, next year or maybe even in the next lifetime. So we spend our days buried in our phones, tapping emails about work deadlines and reading stories about how to prepare for what will be a very different world as the decades continue to churn. “A Thousand Years From Now” is about looking up and seizing the moments that are passing us by. Despite all the troubles that you’re worried about and the calamitous future that the experts have predicted, there are still plenty of reminders of an insanely beautiful world out there right now. You just have to look for them. And you have to listen. The horns on this song are a proof point. When we started working on this, most of the horn ideas came in the form of MIDI files, which basically sound like terrible toy animation music. It’s hard to get a real grasp of what the notes will feel like in real life on real instruments. So when John, Michael and Dan broke into the second chorus of this song in the studio, I cried. And honestly, they still bring tears to my eyes. They are the most joyous thing we have ever recorded. So I hope you stream this, download this or do whatever it is you like to do with your music. Here are the most obvious places to find it: Spotify (https://spoti.fi/2FEn9CR) Apple Music (https://apple.co/2uwEUPu) Amazon Music (https://amzn.to/2uwch57) After you listen, I hope you log out and take a break from thinking about what the next election outcome will be, when the robots will take your job or any of the things that will not matter a thousand years from now. XO, David

We don't want to wait to two days from now for you to hear "A Thousand Years From Now." And you don't have to. It's the Song of the Day at one of the greatest radio stations ever, The Current in Minneapolis. https://www.thecurrent.org/feature/2019/03/27/fort-frances-a-thousand-years-from-now Happy Wednesday. Happy listening. XO, FF

Our new single is called "A Thousand Years From Now." It comes out one week from tomorrow. What is the craziest thing you think will happen in the next millennium?
