Earlier this year, Sharon Van Etten helped celebrate the reopening of Webster Hall with a sold out show at the venue. It was a bittersweet night for Sharon, as she said from the stage, because it was her last NYC show as a New Yorker. Making the night all the more special, she brought out Norah Jones to join her on "Seventeen" from her excellent 2019 album Remind Me Tomorrow. Amazon Music has documented some of that show, as well as the end of Sharon's time in NYC, in a new mini-documentary directed by Josh Goleman, Departure, which you can watch below. In it, Sharon packs up her studio, rehearses with Norah, and gives us a look at the recording of a new version of "Seventeen." It's a slowed down version of the song where she trades trades harmonies with Norah, and hearkens back to the song's original roots, which Sharon describes as "kind of country." You can listen to it (if you're an Amazon subscriber) below.
Sharon has a few tour dates coming up, including a set at Wilco's Sky Blue Sky destination festival. She appears on Jeff Goldblum's new album, singing "Let's Face the Music and Dance" with him, and she'll also have a cover of "Radio Cure" in an upcoming Wilco cover compilation.
