Listen: Sharon Van Etten’s new song “Taking Chances”

on March 04, 2014, 10:24am

Sharon Van Etten has brushed off the first single from her forthcoming third studio album, Are We There, due out May 27th via Jagjaguwar. Dubbed “Taking Chances”, it reupholsters the instrumentation of 2012′s Tramp, opting instead for intricate grooves that wouldn’t sound alien on a Beach House album. Listen below.

As previously reported, the 11-track album was recorded at both Weehawken, NJ’s Hobo Sound Studios and New York’s infamous Electric Lady Studios. Stewart Lerman (St. Vincent, Regina Spektor) handled production duties alongside Van Etten. That’s the tracklist below, followed by tour dates.

Are We There Tracklist:
01. Afraid of Nothing
02. Taking Chances
03. Your Love Is Killing Me
04. Our Love
05. Tarifa
06. I Love You But I’m Lost
07. You Know Me Well
08. Break Me
09. Nothing Will Change
10. I Know
11. Every Time the Sun Comes Up
