Following up 2011’s Metals, Feist has announced last week that her fifth studio album Pleasure will be released April 28th via Universal Records. After details of the album were leaked online, the songstress took to Twitter to reveal further details: “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.”
As for the title of the album, 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.”
Swiftly following the news, the title track from the new album was also released. It’s a grungier, rock’n’roll side to Feist we haven’t heard from in the past and it sounds good. Check it out below and pre-order Pleasure HERE!
