Earlier this month, Eleanor Friedberger released her first new song in over two years, “False Alphabet City”. Today, she’s back with even bigger news: The Fiery Furnaces member will release a new solo LP titled New View on January 22nd.

Due out through new label home Frenchkiss Records, the follow-up to 2013’s Personal Record was recorded live to tape with Friedberger’s backing band, Icewater. Sessions took place in a converted barn in Germantown, New York alongside producer Clemens Knieper.

As a preview of New View, Friedberger has shared “He Didn’t Mention His Mother”, a slowly rolling charmer streaked with fine, crisp guitar lines. Stream it below.
