Feist plots return, reveals details of new album Pleasure on Twitter

Jennifer Van Evra

This week, details of Feist's new album were revealed, surprising everyone โ€” including Feist herself.

The beloved Canadian songwriter is gearing up to release Pleasure, her first album since 2011's Metals. Details of the release began swirling yesterday, and then Feist herself stepped in to clarify.

"Much to my surprise, I woke up this morning to see the word is out for Pleasure," she wrote on Twitter (see below). "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."

Feist went on to explain that she created the album last winter with two of her closest friends, Mocky and Renaud LeTang. She says that she was "raw" and so was the music, which was a mood they aimed to capture.

The title, however, hints at something far less jagged. "I titled the album Pleasure like I was planting a seed or prophecising some brightness," she wrote. "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."

Pleasure is scheduled for release April 28. To hold you over, here is a Feist mini-playlist:
