Fans of Feist are now counting down the days until her new album, Pleasure, comes out on April 28. Some of the die-hard fans may even be planning listening parties. If that’s you, Feist has an extra special opportunity you’ll want to hear about.
Listening parties at record stores and special locations are not uncommon (although not as common as they used to be), but Feist is offering her fans a chance to host private listening parties for her new album next Wednesday night. Here’s the details from her 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.
Feist is also giving away “the only (4) vinyl test pressings in existence” of her new album as part of the listening party contest. The deadline to sign up is midnight on April 19th, so hurry over to Feist’s website to sign up.
Meanwhile, here’s the first two singles from Pleasure. You can pre-order the album here.
