Feist Snags First Billboard Top 10 Album

Canadian singer-songwriter Feist’s 4th studio album ‘Metals‘ made a grand début within the Billboard Top 10 this week, becoming the critically acclaimed indie-folk-pop vocalist’s first album to do so. Good to see some great music doing the rounds of the charts this week. ‘Metals‘ sold 38,000 copies to land in an impressive number 7. And this was Feist’s best sales week in the US.

Feist’s been around since 1999, but she achieved worldwide success when her 3rd studio album, 2007’s ‘The Reminder‘ sold an estimated 3 million copies worldwide, largely to the infectious single ‘1234‘ which was used in the iPod Nano commercial and became an instant smash, peaking at # 8 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album consequently peaked at # 16 on the albums chart, while Feist bagged 4 Grammy nominations for the album.

Metals‘ is her highly anticipated follow-up to’The Reminder‘, and is preceded by the first single ‘How Come You Never Go There‘.

I just got my hands on the album, and being a Feist fan, I’ve waited patiently for over 4 years now. And it’s about frikkin’ time that woman came out with some brilliant music like before! This one sounds promising!
