Feist has shared her new track ‘Borrow Trouble’ from her upcoming album ‘Multitudes’.
The track follows the previously released ‘In Lightning’, ‘Hiding Out in the Open’, and ‘Love Who We Meant To’.
In a statement, Feist reflected on the difficulty of finishing the track, saying: “’Borrow Trouble’ caused some trouble in trying to finish the recording. 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.”
She added that filmmaker Mike Mills directed her deeper into the tangle, insisting she play the drums “because you’re not a drummer!” and Amir Yaghmai brought the fist pumping drone of violins. “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.’”
