Multitudes was produced by Feist with longtime collaborators Robbie Lackritz (The Weather Station,
Bahamas, Robbie Robertson) and Mocky (Jamie Lidell, Vulfpeck, Kelela). Blake Mills (Bob Dylan, Fiona Apple,
Perfume Genius) and Joseph Lorge came in to mix, with Mills as a co-producer in the final stages.
Multitudes took shape soon after the birth of her daughter and sudden death of her father, a back-to-back
convergence of life-altering events that left the Canadian singer/songwriter with “Nothing performative in
me anymore.” As she cleansed her songwriting of any tendency to obscure unwanted truths, Feist slowly
made her way toward a batch of songs rooted in a raw and potent realism which is touched wit otherworldly beauty.

Largely written and workshopped during an intensely communal experimental show of the same name
through 2021 and 2022, the songs on Multitudes developed in parallel with and were deeply influenced by
the mutuality of the unconventional experience. The production, developed by Feist with legendary designer
Rob Sinclair (David Byrne’s American Utopia, Peter Gabriel, Tame Impala) was formulated to bring people
together as they re-emerged from lockdown while providing an outlet for connection between artist, art and community.
