At the end of the month, Leslie Feist is releasing Pleasure, her first new album in six years. So far, all we’ve heard is the title track and the Jarvis Cocker-featuring “Century,” but on 4/26, you might get to hear a whole lot more. Feist is giving away vinyl test pressings to four fans to host listening parties, and she’s holding a contest to decide who gets them. Per her official website:
On Wednesday, April 26th, I cordially invite you to bring your loved ones, comrades, new friends, buried hatchets, intrigues and old flames to come together and listen to Pleasure. You, collectively known as We, will listen together yet in your own space and in your own way.
Send us a description of where your ideal listening place might be; in your kitchen, your school PA speakers, your favourite neighborhood bar, laying on the floor of your friend’s basement, your underwater pool party speakers or a tailgate party at the edge of town… truly wherever.
Tell us about your town or city and where you’d like to host and we’ll be following up nearer the time, with how you’ll get access to the album ahead of it’s official release (which is on April 28th) for your own private Pleasure hang.
Deadline for entries – Midnight, Wednesday April 19th
Thank you. LF
Enter the contest here. Pleasure is out 4/28 via Interscope.
