Sharon Van Etten has a new lyric video for “Taking Chances”, a single from off her upcoming release, “Are We There”, out May 27th in the U.S. and May 26th in EU/UK via Jagjaguwar and SCD. – David D. Robbins Jr.
I’m loving this first Sharon Van Etten single, “Taking Chances”, off her forthcoming new 11-track record “Are We There”, out May 27th via Jagjaguwar. It opens with this irresistibly smooth and intimate combo of guitar and percussion (like some kind of Sade beat) before SVE begins her first verses. She’ll be kicking off a tour May 8th, beginning in Northampton, Mass. at the Iron Horse Music Hall. You can pre-order the record here. Follow SVE at facebook and twitter. – David D. Robbins Jr.
Sharon Van Etten is following her Jagjaguwar debut, “Tramp”, with a 2-CD deluxe edition of the record, featuring the entire original album along with demos for each of the 12 songs. The release is scheduled for November 13th and will include a previously unreleased demo, the acoustic “Tell Me”. The record includes an artistic self-portrait for cover art, and a breakdown of each song taken directly from Van Etten’s personal journal entries. The label has provided a YouTube video link to hear the new track. It’s a pretty song about relationship woes, “Tell me that I’m something that you just don’t love / Tell me that I’m somewhere you don’t want to go / Tell the I’m someplace you don’t want to know / Like the back of your hand / I don’t understand.” Note: Lyrics are unofficial.

Sharon Van Etten has a new video out for one of her prettiest songs, “Magic Chords”, from the album “Tramp”, which was released February 7 via Jagjaguwar. Video was directed by Rick Alverson. This video arrives just after SVE blew away a British audience on Later With Jools Holland. You can follow Sharon Van Etten at facebook. – David D. Robbins Jr.
Here’s a new track, “Serpents”, from Sharon Van Etten, whose record “Epic” was Their Bated Breath’s album of 2010. Last year she first released the intricate and passionate single, “Love More”. But this time around, the first single off her new record, “Tramp”, is decidedly more frenetic and rock and roll. Listen below. Her upcoming LP will be released on February 7th via Jagjaguwar Records. The label lists “Serpent” contributors as Aaron and Bryce Dessner of the National, The Walkmen’s Matt Barrick, Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner, and Doveman’s Thomas Bartlett. – David D. Robbins Jr.
Sharon Van Etten’s lush voice and delicate arrangement is the perfect vehicle for Glass Ghost’s brokenly beautiful “Like a Diamond”, a song the band released on 2009′s “Idol Omen”. The original version featured vocalist Eliot Krimsky’s silvery smooth falsetto. This new version is Van Etten, Krimsky on Wurlitzer, and Mike Johnson on drums. It comes as a free download, courtesy of the artists, and is available here at Other Music digital store. Watch and listen to the original “Like a Diamond” below. – David D. Robbins Jr.
