Sharon Van Etten Records With the NY Times Popcast, Preview New Song “Leonard”

Sharon Van Etten spoke this week with Larry Rohter of the New York Times Music Popcast. They had a great talk about recording Tramp with Aaron Dessner, the progression of its instrumentation, and the emotional places informing the new record.

Sharon also performs acoustic versions of “Leonard”  and “Serpents” from the upcoming album. If you are even a baby fan, you need to download the bejesus out of this. It’s so, so lovely.

I also like the Australian artist Gotye who is interviewed right before Sharon. He sounds like Peter Gabriel, and 20 million people have watched his awesome video.

You can download the Popcast on iTunes here or via the NY Times Arts section.
