ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Sharon Van Etten’s New Album ‘Are We There’ Out May 27th, Shares Summer Tour Dates

Last week we shared the above album teaser trailer, and now we are happy to share more details from Sharon Van Etten’s new album Are We There out May 27th, 2014.

Following up from her 2012 album Tramp, Sharon shares an album not only fully-formed and extravagant in sound but also completely self-produced. Her writing also continues to explore personal experience drawing from feelings of emptiness, loss, fear of change, desire, waiting, and self-healing. After collaborating on Boardwalk Empire, Sharon found a kindred spirit in Stewart Lerman, so she recorded Are We There in his studio in her home state of New Jersey.

Pre-order Sharon’s new album via SC Distribution for a limited bundle including special edition clear vinyl in litho-wrap gatefold jacket and CD in 6 panel cardboard wallet, Taking Chances b/w Taking Chances (demo) limited edition 7″, a signed 5×7″ print of album cover photo by Sharon, and a 17×22″ poster. The album is also available on Amazon, iTunes, and your local record store.

RECORD STORE DAY ESSENTIAL // Shearon Van Ettenwater Split 7″


Sharon Van Etten and Shearwater cover “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” 

RECORD STORE DAY IS UPON US. As April nears, we all frantically search the web looking for the novelty releases that have all the potential to become our year favorites. No searching necessary – Sharon Van Etten has joined Shearwater for a collaborative split 7″, out April 20 via Sub Pop. The single features Shearon Van Ettenwater shredding something serious on their previously recorded cover of the Stevie Nicks/Tom Petty duet “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” which you can watch above.

The b-side features a new song, “A Wake for the Minotaur.” Only 3,000 of the these babies exist, so you better put it at the top of your list. You will also find “A Wake for the Minotaur” on Sub Pop’s Terminal Sales Vol. 6: The Silver Ticket CD comp, a free RSD giveaway. See artwork below and all the details at Pitchfork!
