On June 4 The Fiery Furnaces’ Eleanor Friedberger will release her new solo album Personal Record. Featured on the upcoming LP is the track “She’s a Mirror,” which has premiered courtesy of the online publication Rookie Magazine.

In a recently published interview with the site Friedberger says, “Musically, I wanted a song that was like Iggy Pop’s ‘Lust for Life.’ It changed a bit—it’s not as hard-driving, it’s more Motown-y. Lyrically, thematically, it’s about obsession and it’s about seduction and I like how it’s very vague in terms of whose perspective is being told, where it is coming from. At the end I kind of give it up and say ‘She’s me or a mirror, I don’t know.’ I wanted to keep that ambiguous, about whether I am singing about myself or about another woman. Or if I’m singing from a man’s perspective about another woman, or about me. Or is it about several women?”
