It has been six long years since the release of Feist’s critically acclaimed top 10 album “Metals”, but the wait is almost over.
The Canadian indie pop singer has released the title track from her upcoming fifth studio album “Pleasure”. Feist dished on the new album after details were leaked and appeared on Wikipedia earlier this week. “So here’s what I can tell you,” she wrote on Twitter.
“I made this record last winter with 2 of my closest friends, Mocky and Renaud LeTang,” the 41-year-old singer continued. “I was raw and so were the takes. Our desire was to record that state without guile or go-to’s and to pin the songs down with conviction and our straight up human bodies.”
Forgoing the typical interview format, Feist went right to her fans to tell them exactly what her new project is like. “I titled the album ‘Pleasure’ like I was planting a seed or prophesying some brightness,” Feist explained. “The experience of pleasure is mild or deep, sometimes temporal, sometimes a sort of low grade lasting, usually a motivator. If the way you look at things is how they look then my motivation is to look with a brighter eye.”
“So there it is, in a nutshell,” she concluded before sharing the album’s cover art. “I’m grateful for your curiosity, the music is en route. Best and soon, Leslie.”
The Nova Scotia native’s new album will drop on April 28 through Universal Music Canada. Feist previously announced her first gig in five years, joining artists like Lana Del Ray and Chance the Rapper at Oya Festival 2017 in Oslo, Norway.
