Sharon Van Etten | Tell Me (Demo)
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.
