Fleet Foxes have finished recording the follow up to their hugely successful self-titled debut from last year.

Frontman Robin Pecknold announced via the band's Facebook page that the Seattle alt-folk group will now fly to New York to begin post-production work.
"Well, recording is done! We are flying to New York tomorrow to mix and master the album and will have information about [the] release date and when you'll get to hear a song or two soon. Geologically soon but soon."

Late last year Pecknold told Pitchfork that the album would be out before the end of 2010 and that it would be a lower key affair than their fans are used to.
"There are definitely super-upbeat songs that are being worked on for the new record. But as a whole, it's probably a little bit less upbeat".
