Feist is making her long-awaited return to New Zealand this November with one show only at Auckland's Powerstation.

Touring her latest album, Pleasure, the Canadian singer-songwriter makes her second visit to New Zealand, but her headlining debut. She last played here five years ago with a slot at Laneway Festival 2012.

Feist's fourth album Pleasure was released in April 2017 to critical acclaim, featuring the titular single as well as Century, featuring Jarvis Cocker.

Beginning her career as a member of Broken Social Scene, Leslie Feist has gone on to become one of Canada's most successful solo artists. She has won 11 Canadian Juno Awards from 16 nominations, as well as four Grammy nominations, since her debut album Let It Die in 2004.

The singer found mainstream success with her single 1234 - of which a Sesame Street rewrite became the television show's second-most-watched video in its history.

Pleasure is a return to form for Feist; an intricate tapestry of human emotion woven together by stunning vocals and deftly constructed guitar layers. Managing to be both melancholic and playful, the album is perfectly suited to a live setting.

Feist's New Zealand show precedes her performances in Australia, which mark the final dates of The Pleasure Tour which has so far taken her across North America and Europe.

Feist plays Auckland's Powerstation on Saturday November 25. Tickets go on sale 10am on Thursday September 28.
