new Feist album coming; meanwhile color by number
Feist, like the similarly ambitious Bjork, is slowly unveiling details about her upcoming album, Metals. Valgeir Sigurðsson, who has worked with Bjork, contributed production to the album, along with Feist herself and frequent collaborators Chilly Gonzales and Mocky. The album will be her first since 2007's awesome The Reminder, and will be released on October 4 via Cherrytree/Interscope. So far on Feist's website, she's unlocked two of twelve album preview videos (#1 and #3), and listed the date '8/2/11' under video #7, which is currently locked. Check out the first two videos below.
Earlier today (7/28), Feist revealed a black and white 'paint by number' version of the album artwork (see above) on her facebook with a color palette and the message, "Use the key or make your own and post on the wall here... Our faves will win something special...." Pitchfork points out the official album art will revealed on Tuesday (8/2). Meanwhiler get your Bob Ross on.
