Listen: Feist releses first single from new album ‘Metals’

08.12.11 6 years ago

Feist’s new album ‘Metals’ is out the block with something a little softer than the album title implies.

“How Come You Never Go There” may sound grammatically incorrect, but this love song in context connects through its small, slow beat, Feist’s typical stacked vocals and a second verse that will just kill you.

What I love about Leslie Feist is that all of her vocal takes sound like they were recorded with her lips just so up against the hood of the mic, like she was somewhere dark and intimate for even the fleshiest of full-band encounters. It sounds sexy because it is. This is one of those sexy songs, despite the evident loneliness.

“Metals” was recorded in Big Sur, Calif. and will be out on Oct. 4. She will go on a somewhat brief tour overseas and in North America in support, dates below.
