Feist’s New Single ‘Century’ With Jarvis Cocker Is An Experimental Take On Her Iconic Sound

04.05.17 6 months ago

On April 28, Feist is releasing her first album since 2011’s beloved Metals called Pleasure. Today, she has shared the second single, “Century,” off the upcoming album, to follow up the lead single “Pleasure.” Listen to “Century” above.

The track, which features a spoken word section from Pulp’s ever-cool, innovative Jarvis Cocker, has the same haunting, yet upbeat indie pop feel that Feist is known for. However, the addition of Cocker’s voice-of-god-like contribution proves that she is continually willing to experiment with her music. Add to that the abrupt ending of “Century” and the track builds more of the right kind of anticipation for Feist’s upcoming album.

Leslie Feist, aka Feist, was originally a member of renowned Canadian indie rock group Broken Social Scene, who recently played their first new song in years on Colbert.

Pleasure is out April 28, 2017 via Universal.
