DOWNLOAD: Sharon Van Etten - Love More (MP3)

Sharon Van Etten will be putting out her second record, a seven-song collection called Epic, on October 5th through Ba Da Bing. The track above is the last song off that. If you've seen her live recently (like at the Chris Knox Benefit), you may have caught it. In April, the song was covered at the Music Now Fest in Cincinnati by Bon Iver and members of the National. Their version (captured quite blurily) is posted below, as is a stripped-down acoustic rendition by Sharon.

The new record was recorded at Philly's Miner Street Studios and features vocal assists by Meg Baird (Espers), Cat Martino and Jessica Larrabee (She Keeps Bees). A seven-inch is also due this summer on Polyvinyl.

Live, Sharon will be at Zebulon on July 7th to perform with a screening of The Builder. After that she has a pair of shows in Chicago including the Pitchfork Fest, and then a Saturday, August 7th show at Bushwick Starr with Mike Visser. She's also on the schedule for the Panda Bear- & Public Enemy-hosting Hopscotch Festival in North Carolina this September.

Tracklist for the new album, live videos and dates are below...

@1238, as general rule, if you are even slightly on the fence with these types of issues, then you most certailny would. I put you down for "I'd hit it"

a gem in a land of creeps.

picture yes, video no. Alcohol would be the x factor.

Note this was the first time Sharon ever performed this song in a finger picking style.

Can't wait for her inevitable rise to fame

@236, way to get off topic. Its tangential prattle like that that steers people away from the comment sections on message boards.

Hey, 2:36, you should have pulled a Popartist where you provide a link to more of your YouTube videos of Sharon, then repeat the process ad nauseum every time SVE is mentioned.
