Feist announces first new album in six years, Pleasure
Feist announced her fifth studio album, Pleasure, on Tuesday. The Canadian indie-pop artist’s first full-length since 2011’s Metals arrives April 28. Along with Feist, Mocky and Renaud Letang, who both worked on Metals and her prior release, 2007’s The Reminder, co-produced Pleasure‘s 11 songs.
The 41-year-old singer-songwriter has maintained a relatively low profile since releasing Metals, guesting on Peaches’ 2015 album and posting a Tragically Hip cover in May 2016 when singer Gord Downie was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Buzz about a new Feist release began to swirl in recent months when she noted she would appear on the forthcoming Broken Social Scene album and was added to the lineups of multiple music festivals, including June’s Eaux Claires in Wisconsin.
