Artist: SHARON VAN ETTEN
Who: Eminent singer-songwriter born
in Belleville (New Jersey) 41 years ago
Active: Since 2007 / 6 studio LPs (new one incl.)
Over the past few weeks arresting and exquisite songstress
VAN ETTEN made me and my ears happy with two new
– PORTA –
– USED TO IT –
Clearly harbingers for a new album. True, Sharon announced her sixth longplayer, titled WE’VE BEEN GOING ABOUT THIS ALL WRONG, arriving on 6 May. But surprisingly those new songs will not be on the album.
Van Etten: “I wanted to approach this release differently, to engage my fans in an intentional way, in an effort to present the album as a whole body of work. These 10 songs are designed to be listened to in order, at once, so that a much larger story of hope, loss, longing and resilience can be told.”
Okay, we got the message, Sharon.
