Hear The Title Track From Feist's First Album In 6 Years, 'Pleasure'
On Tuesday, Feist's new album, Pleasure, was announced with a release date of April 28 — amusingly, to the surprise of Leslie Feist herself. Now we have the title track, her first new original song in six years. It begins with an ambient hum and slowly growls into a grinding blues-rocker, swinging back and forth between elegance and nastiness.
Desire and the human body were on Feist's mind in making Pleasure, as she shared on Twitter:

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.— Feist (@FeistMusic) March 14, 2017
I titled the album Pleasure like I was planting a seed or prophecising some brightness.— Feist (@FeistMusic) March 14, 2017
The experience of pleasure is mild or deep, sometimes temporal, sometimes a sort of low grade lasting, usually a motivator.— Feist (@FeistMusic) March 14, 2017
