Feist announces new album Metals out October 4

By Nancy Woo

Returning to the world stage after her 2007 breakout Grammy nominated album The Reminder, Feist announced the follow up LP is set to be released October 4th, 2011. Metals will be released off Cherrytree/Interscope records, and Feist will be touring the country to support the new album.

Leslie Feist.

Recorded in Big Sur, CA, Feist co-produced the album with longtime collaborators Chilly Gonzales and Mocky, as well as newcomer Valgeir SigurĂ°sson (Bjork, Bonnie "Prince" Billy). Like The Reminder, this album is astoundingly intimate, yet often exuberant; rife with transcendent and unforgettable pop gems.

How do we know? In a ticklishly teasing way, Feist is releasing 12 song vignettes over a period of time before the album comes out, much like counting down 'til Christmas by opening a secret door filled with chocolate every day.

Here is the #3 vignette of Feist recording in the studio:
