Last year, Eleanor Friedberger announced the release of her third solo album, New View, with “He Didn’t Mention His Mother,” and today she’s shared another song from the record, which comes out at the end of the month. “Sweetest Girl” is a bit of a misnomer of a title, as there’s not much really sweet about it: “Sweet girl with the broken heart/ Stop crying so I won’t start,” Friedberger sings over muffled instrumentation, which was recorded live-to-tape with producer Clemens Knieper. The new track is accompanied by a video directed by Joe DeNardo, who cuts, crops, and touches up photos of Friedberger as the song rolls along. Check it out below.
New View is out 1/22 via Frenchkiss Records.
