ELEANOR FRIEDBERGER Premieres Video for “It’s Hard” + UK Tour + Reveals Remix of “Are We Good” by Cate Le Bon

Ahead of her UK dates next week in support of current album Rebound which will see Eleanor performing with full band. Eleanor Friedberger premieres both a new video for “It’s Hard” and a special remix of “Are We Good” by Cate Le Bon.

Watch The Video For “It’s Hard

Video Director Christine Pfister explains the thinking behind the ‘It’s Hard’ video: “For this piece, I thought it would be fun to put real Eleanor in the doll world and doll Eleanor in the real world. “It’s Hard “ is about a Greek nightclub, which is also the namesake of the album, so I wanted to focus on the Eleanors traveling to the nostalgic spot.”

Check out the new remix of “Are We Good” by Cate Le Bon

“I’ve admired Cate’s work since a friend in LA put on Mug Museum after dinner. I learned how to play I Think I Knew and later, Love is not Love– usually botching both in front of audiences– but always getting a cheer when I mentioned I was a big fan of Cate LeBon. We met the day after my 40th birthday in Cardiff; she and her friends sang Happy Birthday in Welsh and she gave me a scarf with long, black fringe.

I’ve been interested in the idea of remixing my own recordings for years, and thought Rebound was finally my first album that clearly lent itself to the silly notion. Instead of doing it myself, I thought it would be better to ask a talented friend. I was hoping for a series of remixes; we’ll have to wait and see… “ Eleanor Friedberger

“I didn’t know what a remix was, I still don’t know what a remix is. I subtracted and added and made it longer.” Cate Le Bon

Rebound is the incredible next step in a lauded, brilliant recording career by one of the most prolific, daring independent artists of our time. From her days spent in The Fiery Furnaces, creating melodically off-kilter, idiosyncratic mini-epics, to her three acclaimed previous solo albums, Eleanor Friedberger continues to create exactly what we need to hear when we need to hear it. Always anchored by her plaintive, velvety alto, and Dylan-esque lyrical treatises, Rebound is Eleanor at her very best, and a welcome addition to her rich, celebrated catalogue.
