It’s been an incredible year for Sharon Van Etten. Her Jagjaguwar debut, Tramp, has received the highest of praises, while the live performances have morphed each beautiful song into an experience. We couldn’t be happier to share the news of her Tramp Deluxe Edition, set for release on November 13! The deluxe edition features both the original album, released this past February, AND demos of each track. In addition to the 12 songs, the demo album features the previously unreleased bonus track, “Tell Me,” which you can stream above. It’s Tramp come full circle.

The demo version of Tramp includes new self-portrait artwork and liner notes about each song taken from Van Etten’s journals. Pre-order at SC Distribution or iTunes.

WATCH // Sharon Van Etten Premieres “Magic Chords” Video, Performs Live at Later with Jools Holland

We’ve got two amazing videos from the lovely Sharon Van Etten! First, it’s the official video for her song “Magic Chords.” Director Rick Alverson, who you know for his film The Comedy, pairs the song with a visual that is both stunningly beautiful and disturbing. Shot in Bloomington, IN last month, the video follows Sharon, dressed as puritan, through the woods and into a lake, all while she is having visions of naked bodies in piles. Watch the video above or at Pitchfork, where it premiered this morning.

Last night, Sharon and her band performed live on the esteemed BBC music program, Later with Jools Holland. They chose to play one of Tramp’s standout tracks, “Serpents,” and did an incredible job. We couldn’t be prouder! Watch above.

Sharon Van Etten continues her tour, returning to the States to join Damien Jurado come the end of October! Full list of shows HERE.

ON THE ROAD RECAP: Sharon Van Etten & Her Endless Tour

A week or two ago, Sharon Van Etten and her lovely band took the stage at Newport Folk Festival to a gentle, but enthusiastic roar from an eager audience. Kicking off the set with “All I Can,” Sharon delivers another wonderful performance. NPR writes, “Van Etten alternately exudes quiet confidence, sweet shyness and bold aggression, depending on a given song or moment, and never lets her audience’s attention lag.”

Listen and download the performance at NPR.

Sharon’s in the midst of a yearlong tour and as expected, the feedback has been nothing shy of incredible. Below we’ve included some live footage from her show at Milwaukee’s Turner Hall Ballroom, plus more links to photos and awesome reviews! Have fun digging in and then get out to see a live show yourself! Sharon & co. travel to San Francisco for two performances today – one at Outside Lands Music Festival at 1:15 PM and one at the Rickshaw Stop for an after show later Friday tonight.
