Feist has shared the new song ‘Borrow Trouble’, which will appear on her forthcoming LP Multitudes. It follows the previously released tracks ‘In Lightning’, ‘Hiding Out in the Open’, and ‘Love Who We Meant To’, which accompanied the album’s announcement. Check it out via the accompanying video below.
“’Borrow Trouble’ caused some trouble in trying to finish the recording,” Feist commented in a statement. “It began as a contemplative acoustic morality tale and shape shifted itself into the sound of trouble itself. It’s a mess that holds its own logic. It’s the convincing cacophony that thoughts can be. It saws away at you until your overwhelm pops an air supply in the form of another idea, a solution that starts with accepting there’s no such thing as perfection.”
“Mike Mills (the filmmaker), directed me deeper into the tangle, insisted I play drums ‘because you’re not a drummer!’ and Amir Yaghmai brought the fist pumping drone of violins,” she added. “Early on, when I was writing it Charles Spearin said ‘yah but what does borrowing trouble mean?’ And I said ‘It’s an expression from the old days,’ which became the chorus. ‘May as well let the song explain, like I’m doing now.'”
Multitudes arrives on April 14 via Interscope Records.
