Feist returns with new album Pleasure

Canadian indie-pop singer Feist will release her first album in over five years this April.

Details about the album leaked and appeared on Wikipedia, which led Feist to take to Twitter to make the release official.

“So here’s what I can tell you,” she wrote. “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.”

She continued: “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.”

“So there it is, in a nutshell,” she concluded. “I’m grateful for your curiosity, the music is en route. Best and soon, Leslie.”

Produced by Feist, along with Mocky and Renaud Letang, the album will mark the return of Feist following the release of her last album Metals in 2011.

According to Exclaim!, Pleasure will be released on April 28. Feist also shared the cover art for the new album.
