Hear Feist’s Return With Guitar-Driven New Song ‘Pleasure’

Singer unveils first single, title track from upcoming LP

Feist released a playful new song, “Pleasure.” The single is also the title track of her upcoming LP and first since 2011’s Metals

The guitar-driven rocker starts with a slow, sparse fade-in and only picks up momentum from there, getting louder and more raucous as “Pleasure” wears on. “We know enough to admit/ It’s my pleasure/ And your pleasure,” Leslie Feist snarls on the chorus.

“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 said in a statement. “I titled the album Pleasure like I was planting a seed or prophesizing 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.”

On her Facebook, Feist used the single as soundtrack for clips from classic films including Jules & Jim, Shallow Grave, Videodrome and Port of Shadows.
