New Album From Feist! Stream ‘Metals’ All Day Long, If You Want

If I know you, and I think I do, you’re gonna really enjoy streaming Feist’s new album, Metals. There are two ways to do this: click the link at the bottom of the page, which will take you to a place where seven of the twelve songs will be available to hear, ALONG WITH VIGNETTES. With a goat!

Or you can submit your email address at the bottom of the album art and receive a link to hear the whole damn thing. Hell, you could do both! You’ve got nothing but time.


Also, because Leslie Feist is a beautiful creature of beauty, she wrote and illustrated this introduction to Metals, which tells the story of its birth. I feel like “Now I haven’t left myself enough room! I’ll put them on the mountains.” is really perfect for some reason. I want to say that all week.

So go listen now! You can pre-order Metals on CD or vinyl and on October 4, you’ll be blissfully listening to your new CD / album, probably thinking of me, at least vaguely, for a moment, because of this post.

So what do you think of Metals? Are you still too burnt out on Feist after “1234” that you can’t be bothered with this? Does Feist make you want to get bangs, too?

  1. My favorite tracks are probably “Cicadas and Gulls” and “The Bad In Each Other.”

    The album might not have a “1234”-type single, but it’s a nice, mellow listen.

    Also, (plug alert), there will be a super delightful interview with Leslie later this week on NPR, and I may or may not have developed a crush on her during the course of the taping! So down-to-earth, so funny. Sigh.

  2. i love feist, forever and always. im from her hometown and sometimes when she is around i run into her at the lazy loaf and kettle when we are both having lunch. its nice. she is nice. this album is nice. life is nice today.
    thats all.

  3. Metaaaals. lml. I’m liking it lots.

    And I thought about making a horrible comment about A Commotion, using some variation of the word ‘feisty’, but I decided not to (you’re welcome, peoples). Instead, I’m just going to say that, for now, I’ve enjoyed that song the most; it’s the lesliest one (I’m sorry).
