    The Fiery Furnaces' Eleanor Friedberger will be hitting the road in support of her forthcoming, second solo album, Personal Record, out on June 4. Cassandra Jenkins and members of Icewater will be Eleanor's backing band for these dates with TEEN providing support.

    Personal Record is full of love songs – hellos and goodbyes, infatuation, pre-occupation, loss – but not simply about romantic love. Eleanor explained, "They're also love songs to music: how you feel on stage when you do something spontaneous and it works, how you feel when you hear someone sing a song for the first time, what it's like to watch a friend perform, how you can feel close to someone you barely know because you both happen to love the same record, or playing the same song 40 times in a row, not being able to rest until you own every song recorded by your favorite singer, or every version of your favorite song."

    Visit www.eleanorfriedberger.com to listen to and download the first single, "Stare at the Sun."
