Eleanor Friedberger – “Because I Asked You” Video

The (former?) Fiery Furnace Eleanor Friedberger released her New View album last month, and we’ve posted her recent videos for “He Didn’t Mention His Mother” and “Sweetest Girl.” Today, Noisey has debuted the new clip for her album track “Because I Asked You,” which Friedberger will perform on Seth Meyers tonight. The clip is a fairly conceptual one: An unbroken close-up on an old TV that just shows Friedberger and her band performing in a bar. Below, watch it and read some words about it from Friedberger.

Friedberger tells Noisey:

We shot this video last year at the Good Time Bar in Millvale, PA. We performed a short set there just before singing a round of karaoke; “Bad Moon Rising” and “Right Down the Line” were highlights. The video also features a television from my home bar, where I normally watch a Led Zeppelin DVD on repeat..

New View is out now on Frenchkiss.
