Personal Record is Eleanor at her finest. Written with musician and novelist Wesley Stace, the album is an incredible collection of love songs. While Personal Record is – as the title suggests – a very personal record, Eleanor explains that the album is also “inclusive, written for an intimate setting with direct communication in mind: singer, acoustic guitar, audience.” According to Pitchfork, “…very few are writing with half the precision, wit, and cool poise that Friedberger displays here.
In case you missed it, watch Eleanor perform on Pitchfork TV, Stereogum, & BrooklynVegan, too! Eleanor Friedberger’s Personal Record is available now on CD, LP and digital in the Merge store.
