New album, tour bring Feist to Edmonton this fall

Big news for Feist fans this morning, with the announcement of a new album, and a new fall tour. The Indie darling behind “1,2,3,4” will be in Edmonton Nov. 20 at the Jubilee Auditorium.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, at a cost of $39.50 and $55 plus service charges.

“Metals” will be released on Oct. 4 via Arts & Crafts in Canada, and Cherrytree/Interscope in the U.S. (cover art pictured), with a total of twelve songs. It’s the Maritime-born but prairie-raised Feist’s fifth full-length album, although it’s been four years since her last release (2007’s “The Reminder”).

She’s been busy during those years, though, performing a few times with Broken Social Scene, and was featured in a documentary about the 2007 album, titled “Look At What the Light Did Now”.
