New Release – Are We There

Sharon Van Etten’s new album Are We There will be out May 27 2014.  Pitchfork premiered the first single “Taking Chances” recently.  Listen to that track below.

Sharon Van Etten is a singer/songwriter/guitarist based in Brooklyn, NY.  Andrew Leahey’s biography on allmusic.com states that: “Although she was born and raised in suburban New Jersey, Sharon Van Etten’s folk music evokes the open landscapes and lonely expanses of Middle America.  A dedicated choir student during her childhood, she began writing songs on her guitar as a high-school student and, upon moving to New York, started playing them in concert.  Van Etten signed with the Chicago-based indie label Drag City and issued her intimate, official debut Because I Was in Love in spring 2009, followed by the lush, more band-oriented Epic in 2010.  Van Etten signed to Jagjaguwar in late 2010 and began working with The National’s Aaron Dessner as producer for her third album Tramp; it was released in early 2012.”

The 405 just published an interview with Sharon on the new album that you can read here.
