Feist has shared a new song titled Pleasure, the title track to her forthcoming new album.
Pleasure is the Feist’s fifth studio-album and first full-length in six years, following 2011’s Metals. Produced by Feist along with Mocky and Renaud Letang, the singer announced the album’s release earlier this week on Twitter.
“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.”
Feist releases her new album Pleasure on April 28 via Polydor.
