MUSIC NEWS- IL rocker and 1/2 of Fiery Furnaces, Eleanor Friedberger has debuted a new song from her forthcoming, second solo album, Personal Record, out on June 4th, 2013 via Merge Records. The track, entitled “She’s A Mirror,” is streaming now (listen below).
Personal Record was recorded in late 2012 in New York and Los Angeles, and written with musician/ novelist Wesley Stace, Personal Record is full of love songs; hellos and goodbyes, infatuation, pre-occupation, loss, but not simply about romantic love. Eleanor explained recently, “They’re also love songs to music: how you feel on stage when you do something spontaneous and it works, how you feel when you hear someone sing a song for the first time, what it's like to watch a friend perform, how you can feel close to someone you barely know because you both happen to love the same record, or playing the same song forty times in a row, not being able to rest until you own every song recorded by your favorite singer, or every version of your favorite song. “
