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:
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
