LISTEN // Sharon Van Etten Shares “Just Like Blood”, “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP Out June 9th


“Sharon Van Etten could sing the instruction manual for a dishwasher and make it sound like lyrical poetry. Over the course of four full-lengths, her voice has only evolved and grown both bolder and more nuanced. Van Etten plays every word like an instrument, bending one note into the next with a woozy purr that’s sometimes sensual, sometimes heartbreaking but always arresting.”
NPR Music’s “Songs We Love”

Couldn’t agree more. That’s why we’ve been working on Sharon Van Etten’s next project ‘Sharon Sings Your Favorite Instructional Manuals” EP for a while now. In the meantime, check out new track “Just Like Blood” from the upcoming “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP, out 6/3 via Jagjaguwar. This second single is as sophisticated and evolved as anything Van Etten has ever created. Listen above or on our SoundCloud page.

“I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP EP is available now for pre-order. Instant free downloads of “Just Like Blood” and the EP’s title track come with each digital pre-order.
