Let It Die is the second album by Canadianmarker singer-songwriter Feist. It was recorded in Parismarker during 2002 and 2003 and released in 2004. The album is considered a combination of jazz, bossa nova and indie rock.

Background

Let It Die was hailed as one of the best Canadian pop albums of 2004, and garnered three Juno Award nominations in 2005—winning Best Alternative Album and Best New Artist. Let It Die was nominated once again in the 2006 Juno Awards; this time for "Inside and Out" as Single of the Year.

Let It Die has attracted a significant international audience. The album was originally divided into original compositions on the first half and cover versions on the second, though a reissue later in 2004 added a further original composition as the penultimate track.

The single "Mushaboom" is a pun on sh-boom as a refrain, and the Canadian coastal communitymarker east of Halifaxmarker, Nova Scotiamarker, the province where Feist was born. The song was used in a Lacoste commercial.
