Sun Giant is an EP by Seattle-based band Fleet Foxes, released on April 8, 2008, on Bella Union and Sub Pop. The EP was named the #1 album of the year by Pitchfork in conjunction with their debut LP, Fleet Foxes. While the EP was released prior to their debut album, Fleet Foxes, the songs on Sun Giant were recorded after those that feature on their full-length album. The band stated that the EP was pressed so that they had something to sell on tour, and clarified that the music was not indicative of their ambitions. Sun Giant was in fact originally intended to be a tour only release, but demand from fans led to its official release.
