Sharon Van Etten


Sharon Van Etten celebrates 10 years of 'Are We There', one of her most powerful and timeless collections, and announces the 'Are We There (Anniversary Edition)', and “Every Time The Sun Comes Up” 7”, out August 23rd via Jagjaguwar. Upon its release in 2014, 'Are We There' was described by Rolling Stone as “a magnificent fourth LP, which grows her trademark examinations of romantic decay to cathedral-like scale,” and by Pitchfork as “her most present-tense album to date, her most immediate and urgent—the peak of a steady upward trajectory.” It garnered collective praise from fans and critics across the globe, and landed on a slew of Best of 2014 lists, including top 25 nods from Uncut, Under The Radar, Paste, MOJO, Pitchfork, New York Magazine, Consequence, A.V. Club and beyond.

“Every Time the Sun Comes Up” lifts the album, completing the world Van Etten let us into and resetting us gently for whatever may follow. As described by T Magazine, "the song's levity is a highlight of the album, with the kind of swagger both Loretta Lynn and Rihanna might envy. It's as daring as anything she's recorded." Since its release, “Every Time The Sun Comes Up” has become an indelible staple of Van Etten’s live shows. In conjunction with today’s release, she reveals the new, upbeat alternative version with an accompanying lyric video. Recorded remotely, Van Etten asked her drummer, Jorge Balbi, to produce it based off of the live arrangement the band has been playing for a few years now. “This version of ‘Every Time The Sun Comes Up’ developed as the band and I were really honing our sound,” comments Van Etten. “We were rehearsing for the We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong Tour, leaning into some of our influences to give the song a more current feel to where we were all creatively at the time. We performed it live and the audience really responded to our new Joy Division-like spin on it. We had the idea to release it to celebrate the Are We There 10-year anniversary and breathe new life into it, which feels like the perfect time.”
