It's been over five long years since we last had a new Feist album. Thankfully the wait is almost over! April 28th sees release of her fifth studio album - Pleasure. First taster is the title track, a raw and guitar driven track with those iconic vocals front and centre. It's sparse and really builds up a painting of sounds as the time progresses, starting so soft you wonder if the stream is not working. And then takes off and soars. Says Leslie Feist:
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.
