Eleanor Friedberger's new single, Roosevelt Island, is taken from her debut solo album, Last Summer, which is available through Merge Records. Eleanor will be making her UK live debut at Bethnal Green on December 1st 2011, where she will be performing songs from her album, backed by a full live band.
The guerrilla style video for Roosevelt Island was shot on the island itself. Eleanor boards a tram to a funfair, where she spends her time riding on the rides with her head in a notebook.
Eleanor is well known as a member of The Fiery Furnaces, which she formed with her brother Matthew in 2000. They have had nine studio albums to mixed reviews. Their most recent album, Take Me Round Again, was released online in November 2009 and featured songs that originally appeared on the 2009 album I'm Going Away.
