Fleet Foxes iTunes Error


From the “Our Bad” Department:

Due to technical (and a little human) error, the version of “He Doesn’t Know Why” from the brand-new, self-titled Fleet Foxes album that was available from the iTunes Music Store had two audio drop-outs. This has now been fixed and all purchases henceforth will be correct and defect-free, as the good lord intended. We apologize profusely for this inconvenience. Please accept our apologies for the mistake.

Anyone stuck with a bum version of “He Doesn’t Know Why” can contact iTunes customer service here and they will issue you a credit.

All heartfelt contrition aside, how great is this Fleet Foxes record??!
