We’re one week away from the release of Last Summer, the solo debut of Eleanor Friedberger. If her name looks familiar, it’s because you also know her as one half and the voice of the Fiery Furnaces. As its title implies, Last Summer was recorded during the summer of 2010. And even though we have only heard one single — the fetching “My Mistakes” — we’re expecting good to great things from Friedberger on here. I mean, it’s not like she ever turned out anything too disappointing as part of the Fiery Furnaces. Well, except for 2004’s Rehearsing My Choir. But I digress.
You can stream Last Summer, which drops July 12, over at NPR.
