LISTEN // ‘I Don’t Want To Let You Down,’ The New EP from Sharon Van Etten, Out Now Worldwide

Van Etten’s way with a melody, and her remarkable voice, can make these stories seem epic, almost mythical. But they all center on the kind of tough, essential, everyday dilemmas that are the heart of living a satisfying life, the same ones that break your heart the hardest.”
NPR All Songs Considered

I Don’t Want To Let You Down, the new EP from Sharon Van Etten, is now available worldwide. She is also playing her first shows in South America this week.

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.

LISTEN // Sharon Van Etten’s “Our Love” Gets Remix Treatment From The Juan MacLean [DFA Records]


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.

Pick up her new album via SC Distribution, Amazon, iTunes, and your local record store.
