Eleanor Friedberger playing the Bottle on tour with TEEN

Eleanor Friedberger @ South Street Seaport, July 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Eleanor Friedberger is set to release her second solo album, Personal Record, on June 4 via Merge Records. The LP was co-written with musician/novelist Wesley Stace (aka John Wesley Harding), and produced by Eric Broucek (LCD Soundsystem, !!!, Cut Copy), who also worked on Friedberger’s 2011 debut solo effort Last Summer. You can stream the album’s lead single “Stare at the Sun” at the bottom of this post. Personal Record‘s cover art and tracklisting are also below.

Eleanor will be heading out on a summer North American tour in support of Personal Record. That tour features support from TEEN, who played a BrooklynVegan day party at SXSW last week, and includes a performance at the Empty Bottle on June 7. Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Friday (3/22) at 10AM CST.
