WATCH // Sharon Van Etten Debuts New Single “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” On The Ellen Show, Now Available As Digital Single + New Tour Dates


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.

Download the track on iTunes and stream it on Spotify.

Everyone in Ellen’s audience got a copy of Are We There and YOU CAN TOO. Order it via SC Distribution, Amazon, iTunes, and your local record store.

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.

ALBUM RELEASE // Sharon Van Etten ‘Are We There’ Out Now Worldwide, On Tour Now


Sharon Van Etten‘s new album Are We There is now out worldwide!

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.

Preview the new album with selected tracks above or on our Soundcloud here.

Get the new album via SC Distribution, Amazon, iTunes, and your local record store.

Fantastic reviews have already started to come in:

“Even as she has settled into a successful solo career, Van Etten continues to write incisively about the volatility of love, with no loss of urgency or investment – Van Etten never sounded quite so self-assured musically”

Pitchfork // 8.2

“Are We There offers an artist in full command of her voice and her instrument, a woman who knows exactly what she wants to offer listeners and who isn’t afraid to accompany the barest streaks of sunlight with thousands of clouds.”

The A.V. Club // A-

“Are We There functions best as the portrait of an artist coming into her own, while hopefully putting some of her demons to rest.”

Consequence of Sound // A-
