New Release: Feist – Pleasure

After a number of rumours about a new Feist album swooped and swirled this morning, the Canadian singer-songwriter has now confirmed the upcoming release with an announcement on Twitter, which showed that even she was caught by surprise at the news…

Nonetheless, we are over the moon to hear that Pleasure, her follow-up to the outstanding 2011 record Metals, will be unveiled on April 28th, and will feature 11 brand new tracks

About the record, Leslie Feist stated, ‘So here’s what I can tell you…. I made this record last winter with 2 of my closest friends, Mocky and Renaud LeTang. 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. I titled the album Pleasure like I was planting a seed or prophecising some brightness. 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.’

The tracklisting for Pleasure is as follows..

I Wish I Didn’t Miss You
Get Not High, Get Not Low
Lost Dreams
Any Party
A Man Is Not His Song
The Wind
Baby Be Simple
I’m Not Running Away
