Feist Asks “How Come You Never Go There” On New Single
If you’re a true fan of an artist’s debut work, nothing’s more nerve-wracking than anticipating the quality of their follow-up. One of pop music’s most recognizable voices is back and thankfully, she sounds as haunting and brilliant as always.
For a few weeks now fans have had the chance to hear Feist‘s new song “How Come You Never Go There” from her upcoming sophomore album, Metals (due October 4) via an audio stream on various music sites. The soulful, smoky tone of the track is a departure from the sunny pop of her breakout hit (a.k.a the Apple song) “1,2,3,4″ (from The Reminder, her Grammy-nominated 2007 debut) but sets the stage for a wiser, more introspective Leslie Feist, now in her mid-30s.
According to MTV, Metals will feature 12 tracks (including “The Bad In Each Other,” “Cicadas And Gulls” and “Get It Wrong Get It Right”) and you can check out Feist’s series of vignettes documenting her recording process via herWeb site.
