Matthew and Eleanor are taking time out from watching season two of Mad Men to record separate, complete, cover, tribute, albums, of, to, I’m Going Away.¬† Only the words will remain the same.¬† Though in Eleanor’s case, the singer remains the same.¬† The song, never.¬† Or mostly never.

In other words:  complete cover-album versions of the Fiery Furnaces by the Fiery Furnaces.  Or The Fiery Furnaces.  By the two of them, separately.  To be released in two parts, together.

Six songs by one with six by the other.¬† And then another six by six.¬† The first batch comes out sometime in New York City–¬† meaning September.

Tell us when your cover version will come out. Write to

    Sounds like a great idea! It will really emphasize what each of you bring to the group.

    What the hell?
    Hahaha that’s is so confusing.
    You cover your own album?
    6 songs each?
    and then 6 by 6?

    Well it just so happens that my band, The Delfields, did a cover of the smash hit “Charmaine Champagne”. We are very proud of it….we simply kept the lyrics and give it our own twist….and shook it for 12 hours….at least.

    marilina why do you want to know who wrote that so badly? does it remind you of someone you know that expresses itself of that way?
