Feist will hit the road this summer for a series of intimate shows to introduce audiences to her new album Pleasure, which will be released on April 28 via Interscope Records / Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The four-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter’s tour will be an international affair with the pre-sale launching tomorrow and general public tickets this Friday (April 7). Tickets can be purchased at listentofeist.com.
Feist is touring in support of Pleasure, her fourth full-length and first album in six years. The eagerly awaited album is available for pre-order now. Those who pre-order the album will receive the title track “Pleasure” as well as the newly released single, “Century” featuring Jarvis Cocker. “Century” premiered today as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1. Listen to “Century” HERE.
Pleasure builds off the warm naturalism of the Polaris Prize-winning Metals and emerges as Feist’s most formally defiant and expansive work so far. And while each album is a departure from the next, Pleasure finds the ten-time JUNO Award winner again showing the extraordinary depth of her artistry.
In 2004 Feist made her U.S. debut with Let It Die, featuring “Mushaboom” – which won the JUNO Award for Best Alternative Rock Album, and garnered major critical acclaim. Her 2007 follow-up The Reminder debuted in the Top 20 in the U.S. and was hailed by The Village Voice as a “great batch of simple, precisely arranged love songs — expertly produced, delectably sung.” The single “1234” boosted the album’s sales to more than a million units internationally. Also including lead single “My Moon My Man,” The Reminder won Feist the 2007 Shortlist Music Prize (making her only the second woman to ever win the award).
After a several-year hiatus — during which she co-created Look At What The Light Did Now, a documentary about the making of The Reminder and her subsequent tour — Feist returned with Metals in 2011. Metals was her highest charting album, debuting at #9 on Billboard. It was named Album of the Year by the New York Times and won the Polaris Prize and four more JUNO Awards. To date, Feist’s music has sold over three million units worldwide and amassed more than 500 million streams. This past weekend, Feist performed at the 2017 JUNO Awards broadcast, where she delivered a moving tribute to Leonard Cohen with a rendition of “Hey That’s No Way To Say Goodbye”.
