The last time we received a new album from Leslie Feist was six years ago. With her colourful voice that induces both hope and desperation, and arrangements that features folk-tinged instrumentation as well as distinct rhythmic passages, Feist has become a household name by many. Her stunning catalogue is a work of genius, and even though she released her first piece of music back 1999 not even a single tone of hers sounds dated. This is an artist that succeeds with the noble art of timelessness. Just recently Feist announced that her fifth album were on it’s way to be released this spring – the greatest piece of news we’ve heard in a while.
Apart from being a well-known solo artist, Feist is also a part of the Toronto-based collective Broken Social Scene. Her voice can be heard on three albums of theirs, and she will also be featured on their next release that is expected to drop sometime this year. As a solo artist Feist received her big break with “The Reminder” back in 2007. The album, which featured a song highlighted in an Apple-commercial and received four Grammy nominations, introduced Feist to a whole new audience. With two new projects incoming, 2017 looks like a lot like the year of Feist – just like any other year she decides to release music.
