Eleanor Friedberger - "He Didn’t Mention His Mother" Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Since breaking off from the Fiery Furnaces a few years back, Eleanor Friedberger’s reinvented herself as a singer-songwriter quite effortlessly. She gave us a new song, “He Didn’t Mention His Mother,” about a month ago along with a trailer for her upcoming album, New View, the follow-up to 2013’s fantastic Personal Record. Now she’s shared the video for that single. Directed by Mark & Spencer, it shows her rehearsing at her upstate New York home with her backing band Icewater and recording the album at producer Clemens Knieper’s Sunnyland Studio, interspersed with shots of everyone hanging around in the autumnal surroundings. The visuals are beautifully shot, and Friedberger’s as poised as ever. Watch below.
New View is out 1/22/16 on French Kiss. Pre-order it here.
