Out Now: Sharon Van Etten releases ‘We’ve Been About This All Wrong’ album; YouTube Live Stream Hosting

Acclaimed freelance singer/songwriter Sharon Van Etten back today, May 6, with We got it all wronghis sixth full album and the first since 2019 Remind me tomorrow.

Van Etten announced the new record in early April, with a single caveat: there would be no pre-release tracks shared as singles. Instead, she wanted the album’s 10 songs to be experienced as a cohesive artistic statement, rather than a sequence of cut-out singles for the digital age.

A refreshing old-school approach, which matched the thematic weight of the album, which a press release summed up unequivocally:

Sharon Van Etten has always been the kind of artist who helps people make sense of the world around them, and We’ve Been About This All Wrong is about the questions we ask ourselves when we think about the world – or at least, to our world – could end. Did we love as we could? Have we tried enough? How do we protect the things most precious to us from destructive forces beyond our control? And how can we salvage something worthwhile when it seems all is lost? By considering these questions and his own vulnerability to them, Van Etten has created a stunning meditation on how life’s changes can be both terrifying and transformative. We’ve Been About This All Wrong expresses the beauty and power that can be salvaged from our wreckage.

Said Van Etten of the deliberate approach to publishing it as a completed project:

“I wanted to approach this release differently, to engage my fans intentionally, with the aim of presenting the album as a body of work. These ten songs are designed to be listened to in order, at a time, so that a much larger story of hope, loss, longing and resilience can be told. This is, in itself, an act of subtle control, but in sharing these songs, it remains optimistic and generous. of the album reflects that too, inspired as much by Van Etten’s old life as by his new one.”I wanted to convey that in an image with me stepping away from it all”, says Van Etten, “not necessarily brave, not necessarily sad, not necessarily happy.”

The result is a powerful artistic statement, which adds to Sharon Van Etten’s catalog of emotive, expressive and entirely original material.

Van Etten will host an album release special live on YouTube tonight at 8 p.m. ET, where she will begin with a music video premiere for one of the record’s standouts, “Mistakes.”
