Feist streams new album

Releases

Feist

Much was made of Leslie Feist’s last LP ‘The Reminder’, which produced huge crossover hits in ‘My Moon My Man’, ‘I Feel It All’, and the charming, advert-featured ‘1234’. Folksy brush strokes of ‘The Reminder’ exist alongside daubs of darker, earthier colour on the album’s sequel, ‘Metals’, which is now streaming online ahead of its 3 Oct release.

Feist’s musical palette seems broader across her latest offering than in past works, and ‘Metals’ finds her laying out an array of warming folk-pop morsels, enriching her brand of mystic, organic balladry with country inflections and well-placed orchestral accents.
