New music from Sharon Van Etten

I can't remember exactly when I became aware of Sharon Van Etten, but I remember the song I heard not really resonating with me at the time.  Yes, beautiful voice, folky arrangement, but, at the time I passed on giving it a longer listen.  After hearing her latest track, and fully coming to my senses, I'm on board.  On the bandwagon so to say, hell, I might even be driving that wagon from now on.  And that hesitation concerning her June 21st show at the Exit/In in Nashville is gone.  Tickets will be bought tonight!

Taking Chances is the first single from her upcoming album, Are We There due out in late May.  The tune is a slow burner, beautifully composed with Sharon's haunting voice stealing the show, as the arrangement slowly rises in intensity.  Now go, listen, let me know what you think.
