Feist Reveals The Cover & Tracklist Of New LP, ‘Pleasure’

Feist Is Working On A New Album
Rumor has it that Feist is working on a new album, which will drop in April.

EDIT: Post updated with title track “Pleasure.”

Feist is preparing to release her first album in six years. Pleasure was co-produced by the Canadian with longtime collaborators Renaud LeTang and Mocky, and arrives on April 28. The “1234” singer shared the cover on Instagram this afternoon (March 14) and it finds her entering a mysterious doorway in a wall covered in bright pink bougainvillea. She also gave a little insight into the new project. “Much to my surprise, I woke up this morning to see the word is out for Pleasure,” the 41-year-old quipped. “But as Leonard Cohen once said ‘the devil laughs at those who make plans.'”

“I’ve been so inward facing during the making of this record that I hadn’t quite prepared myself to face it, and myself, outward again. So here’s what I can tell you… I made this record last winter with 2 of my closest friends, Mocky and Renaud LeTang,” she reveals. “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 very un-Feist title?

“I titled the album Pleasure like I was planting a seed or prophecizing 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. I’m grateful for your curiosity, the music is en route.” See the tracklist and listen to the title track below.
