This morning, Sharon Van Etten gave us a taste of her forthcoming album Are We There in the form of the dark, brooding single Taking Chances. Van Etten has showcased her talents on soundtracks to shows including The Walking Dead and Boardwalk Empire, but what’s truly impressive is her ability to turn her voice into a powerfully delicate instrument. Taking Chances is rooted with a fundamental singer-songwriter groove, and Van Etten’s ability to control sonic and emotional dynamics makes the track a perfect score to your own real-life drama. Are We There is due out on May 27 via Jagjaguwar, but you can get part of the way There by checking out the single, the album trailer, and Van Etten’s tour dates below.
