Sharon Van Etten at Bowery Ballroom (more by Jessica Amaya)
Sharon Van Etten

Sharon Van Etten just headlined Bowery Ballroom recently and will return to play another hometown show at the about-equally-sized Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on 4/16 with Little Scream. Tickets go on AMEX presale Wednesday, 1/19, at noon, and then on regular sale 48 hours later.

The new date comes toward the end of Sharon's recently announced tour with Montreal's Little Scream who has some more good news of her own. The Golden Record, which we previously discussed, will be released by Secretly Canadian on April 15th! Co-produced with Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre), the LP features appearances from multiple guest stars including Parry, Becky Foon (A Silver Mt. Zion), Patty McGee (Stars), Sarah Neufeld (Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre), and Aaron Dessner (The National), who lends his talents to the lead single "The Heron and the Fox" available for download above.

Little Scream's signing news comes not long after fellow Montreal band The Luyas announced that they would be releasing their album via the same label family (The Luyas signed to Dead Oceans).
