Just a brief post here to note that you can now stream Feist's new album, "Metals," free online. A couple of weeks ago I posted its first single, "How Come You Never Go There," and now the entire album is up for streaming. Just enter your e-mail address in the space above, then click a link in the confirmation e-mail that you'll get to open the player.
In a typically quirky, Feistian touch, the page with the album stream also features a handwritten note/illustration from the artist, describing the recording of the album (complete with simple drawings of mountains, the ocean, and the house they recorded in.) You can also download the note (I'm not sure why anyone would want to, but it's there anyway.)
"Metals" will be released in the U.S. and Canada on Oct. 4th (Oct. 3rd in Europe and the U.K.).
You buy Feist's "Metals" at Amazon.comfor $10.00 for the CD or $9.49 for the MP3 download. (Amazon sometimes offers steep temporary discounts on some new releases, so you might want to watch for this.)
