Sharon Van ELLEN.
Life just keeps getting better and better for Sharon Van Etten. In 2014, she gave us the breathtaking Are We There which made itself onto a smattering of Top Ten lists, including Uncut, Noisey, Under The Radar, American Songwriter, Drowned In Sound, Paste, Stereogum & Q Magazine. Yesterday, a ga-jillion people saw Sharon on The Ellen Show where she debuted new single ‘I Don’t Want To Let You Down’ (Also on the episode was Mariah Carey, but alas, no guest verse from Mimi). Catch the performance above and listen to the track on our SoundCloud page.
In addition to this performance, Sharon is kicking off the year with two sold out shows at Warsaw in Brooklyn next month before touring the rest of the globe. Full Dates after the jump.
Looking for some more tracks to add to your ‘Tryptophan Mixtape ’14′? Plan ahead for when that warm, fuzzy feeling starts kicking in with these four new live tracks from Sharon Van Etten. Recorded at the Spotify offices in New York, Sharon shares tracks “Tarifa”, “Every Time The Sun Comes Up”, and “Afraid Of Nothing” from 2014′s Are We There, in addition to “Tornado” from her debut LP Because I Was In Love. Listen via Spotify or below.
Sharon has a few dates left in Europe before picking things back up in February with shows in Japan, Australia, and Mexico. Full dates + ticket links after the jump.
Sharon Van Etten currently is selling out shows all across Europe (just head to her Instagram to see the results) and today she shares a long-awaited video for “Your Love Is Killing Me”, one of her most personal and critically acclaimed tracks [including receiving a Pitchfork "Best New Music" when it premiered]. Directed by Sean Durkin [Martha Marcy May Marlene, Southcliffe] and featuring Carla Juri [Wetlands], the video is more of a short film than music video and should not be missed. Watch it above or on YouTube / Vevo. For a look at behind-the-scenes photos of the shoot and more, head to Indiewire where it premiered yesterday.

Sharon Van Etten continues her North American tour next month starting on the 3rd playing the Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco. To celebrate her return to the stage after a brief break from an already extensive 2014 world tour, Sharon shared a special remix by The Juan MacLean [DFA Records] with THE FADER yesterday. The Juan MacLean is the super-duo of DFA‘s John MacLean and LCD Soundsystem‘s Nancy Whang. Listen to it above or here on Soundcloud.
On the remix Sharon writes,
“I feel very lucky that Juan Maclean made the time to do a remix of my song. Being a huge fan of Air, Daft Punk, James Murphy, I was looking for something that had a bit of edge, but I wasn’t expecting this. He started by giving it a lot of space and let the vocals remain dark and bleak while incorporating both my samples and his own sound. I feel honored that he wanted to collaborate.”
If you missed it a few weeks ago, watch Sharon perform “Break Me” and “Tarifa” on Jimmy Kimmel Live here on Youtube and “Every Time the Sun Comes Up” on Late Show with David Letterman here on YouTube.
