On September 22, 2020, Fleet Foxes released their fourth studio album Shore. It was announced one day in advance of its release, and was intentionally released exactly at the autumnal equinox. It was the follow-up to their 2017 album Crack-Up and the band's first release on Anti- Records. It was the band's second album since regrouping in 2016 after a three-year hiatus.
A virtual, pre-recorded concert performance entitled A Very Lonely Solstice was livestreamed at 9 pm ET on December 21, 2020, coinciding with the winter solstice. The concert features lead singer Robin Pecknold performing an acoustic solo set inside the St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church in Brooklyn. It begins with a performance of "Wading in Waist-High Water" featuring the Resistance Revival Chorus, a collective of women and nonbinary singers. The rest of the performance features Pecknold performing solo on acoustic guitar. It features performances of songs from Shore and older Fleet Foxes songs, as well as cover versions of the traditional folk ballad "Silver Dagger" and the Bee Gees song "In the Morning". A Very Lonely Solstice is dedicated to Sam Jayne of the band Love as Laughter.
