Feist announces release of new album ‘Metals’ – video

The Big Sur recorded effort is out October 3

Feist is set to release her fifth studio album, ‘Metals’, on October 3.

The album is the folk-pop star’s first since 2007’s ‘The Reminder’ and was recorded in California‘s picturesque Big Sur area, with co-production from Chilly Gonzales, Mocky and Valgeir Sigurðsson (Bjork, Bonnie Prince Billy).

‘The Reminder’ featured the track ‘The Limit To Your Love’, which was covered by minimal solo artist James Blake last year as ‘Limit To Your Love’.


12 mini film clips hinting at the content of ‘Metals’ will be released online as teasers for the new album. These vignettes can be followed at listentofeist.com.

This isn’t Feist‘s first foray into film. A documentary trailing her 2007 album was also unveiled at the Raindance Film Festival last year. Throughout the film, the Canadian singer was seen traversing an array of scenery, stadiums, puppet workshops, red carpets, at a crumbling French mansion, in concert and being interviewed.
