Canadian indie pop singer-songwriter and guitarist, Feist, shares another track from her forthcoming album Multitudes. The single, titled “Borrow Trouble,” arrives with an accompanying music video co-directed by Colby Richardson, Heather Goodchild, Leslie Feist, and Mary Rozzi, who also shot the visuals.
The 47-year-old artist kicks off the first verse singing: “To sleeping innocent minds/ It happens at the break of day/ Before your wits are gathered/ Even before you are awake/ Your thoughts will find a clock to wind/ And put dissent into your ear/ Even before your eyes are open/ The plot has thickened ’round your fears.”
In the video, Rozzi adopts a surrealistic approach and uses long exposure effects, as Feist rocks out the chorus: “We borrow trouble/ Seems we all know how/ It’s an expression from the old days/ But even more true now/ We borrow trouble/ We even borrow timе/ Like you don’t have enough of your own/ Now you want somе of my– Trouble!”
Feist revealed that she went to quite the “trouble,” while 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,” explained the musician.
“Borrow Trouble” is the follow-up to “Hiding Out in the Open,” “In Lightning,” and “Love Who We Are Meant To.” All four singles are from the upcoming album Multitudes, which is set to come out on April 14. In addition to the already released tracks, the record includes songs like “Martyr Moves,” “Song For Sad Friends,” “Become The Earth,” and “I Took All Of My Rings Off.”
