Restless Soul SHARON VAN ETTEN Released Her Best Album So Far With ‘WE’VE BEEN GOING ABOUT THIS ALL WRONG’

New longplayers

7 May 2022

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.)

New album: WE’VE BEEN GOING ABOUT THIS ALL WRONG
Released: 6 May – order info here

Uncut Magazine (British music monthly): “We’ve Been Going… is above all an incredible sounding record. Across its 10 tracks, it incorporates the Jupiter synths and saturnine beats of Remind Me Tomorrow and the stark, swooning strum of her early records to create truly a cosmic dynamic range, from the softest whisper to the most desolate scream.” Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume: More orchestral and even more poignant than before. Not one mediocre track here. My ears tell me that this is Van Etten‘s top-of-the-range album (so far). The restless soul spellbinds from start to finish.

Her heavenly voice, her passional stories and her five-star songwriting
competency are the key components of this masterly achievement.

Btw, Sharon also surprised her fans
(like me) by not dropping singles ahead of the LP release.

Key tracks: Darkness Fades / I’ll Try / Anything / Headspace / Mistakes

Upcoming… New SHARON VAN ETTEN Album

9 April 2022

Artist: SHARON VAN ETTEN
Who: Eminent singer-songwriter born

Over the past few weeks arresting and exquisite songstress
VAN ETTEN made me and my ears happy with two new
beauties.

– 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.

Warning: The album trailer, below, can cause rapid eye movement…
