Sharon Van Etten announces new album, We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong

Sharon Van Etten will release her new album, We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong, on May 6, 2022 via Jagjaguwar. The LP concerns itself with the questions we ask ourselves when we think the world – or at least, our world – might be ending. Have we loved as well as we could? Did we try hard enough? How do we protect the things most precious to us from destructive forces beyond our control? And how do we salvage something worthwhile when it seems all is lost?

Since the release of her previuos album Remind Me Tomorrow, Van Etten has collaborated with Joshua Homme , Courtney BarnettAngel Olsen and more. Earlier releases were covered by artists like Fiona Apple, Lucinda Williams, Big Red Machine and Idles.

Unlike Van Etten’s previous albums, there will be no singles leading up to the release of We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong. Recent singles, “Porta” and “Used To It,” do not live on this album. Van Etten comments, “I wanted to approach this release differently, to engage my fans in an intentional way, in an effort to present the album as a whole body of work. These ten songs are designed to be listened to in order, at once, so that a much larger story of hope, loss, longing and resilience can be told.”

The album features Van Etten plays guitar, synthesizers, piano, drum machine, wurlitzer, keys and more, she’s supported by her regular touring band of Jorge Balbi on drums, Devon Hoff on bass, and live musical director Charley Damski on synthesizers and guitars.
