Rumours about a new Feist album have been swirling since last month, and now official details for the upcoming release have been confirmed. Feist's next album will be titled Pleasure, and it's due out on April 28 via Universal.
It marks the follow-up to 2011's Metals and her fifth solo album overall. The forthcoming full-length was produced by Feist, Mocky and Renaud Letang.
We're still waiting for a musical preview of the record to arrive, but for now, you can peruse the 11-song tracklisting down below, and preorder here.
UPDATE (3/14, 4:45 p.m. EST): Feist has now taken to Twitter to shed more light on the album, as well as share the record's cover art. You can see the cover above and her tweets below.

I've been so inward facing during the making of this record that I hadn't quite prepared myself to face it, and myself, outward again.— Feist (@FeistMusic) March 14, 2017
So here's what I can tell you....— Feist (@FeistMusic) March 14, 2017
I made this record last winter with 2 of my closest friends, Mocky and Renaud LeTang.
I was raw and so were the takes.— Feist (@FeistMusic) March 14, 2017
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
If the way you look at things is how they look then my motivation is to look with a brighter eye.— Feist (@FeistMusic) March 14, 2017
As previously reported, Feist will also appear on the upcoming Broken Social Scene record, which is expected out this summer. She's also slated to perform at a series of summer festivals, including Field Trip and Winnipeg Folk Fest.
So there it is, in a nutshell. I'm grateful for your curiosity, the music is en route. Best and soon, Leslie 🌺— Feist (@FeistMusic) March 14, 2017
