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.
