Pleasure, Feist’s first album since Metals in 2011, was released April 28th, 2017. Feist’s label has described the album as an exploration into emotional limits, such as loneliness, private ritual, secrets, shame, mounting pressures, disconnect, tenderness, rejection, care and the lack thereof. She also told Pitchfork that the album came at a time of feeling raw from life. The day the word pleasure sprung to my mind, it was a contrarian idea, because I was having too little of it at the time. I was experiencing things through a bit of a pall of feeling quite lost.

Pleasure is one of those albums where Feist uncovers a variety of themes that give us a sense of her past, present and future. Most songs on this project are well over five minutes long, giving listeners a sense of the amount that needs to be said about each topic Feist tackles. As a result, Pleasure is a beautifully orchestrated, emotional ride about self-discovery and tackling the most human emotions. The album starts with the title track Pleasure, which is a chance for Feist to give her views on happiness and how it’s considered the ultimate prize in life

Here and elsewhere on Pleasure, Feist’s lyrics express new feelings of uncertainty toward aspects of life that had formerly seemed fundamental. In the case of A Man Is Not His Song, what she questions is her own confidence in music and its ability to sustain her. As much as she treasures the old melodies, she articulates the danger in regarding the songs not as expressions of herself but the self itself. A supported solo album was how we approached it. It’s still terrific to have Jarvis Cocker drop by on Century. His cameo reminds me of Vincent Price on Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
