Sharon Van Etten Interview: Tramp

You might remember TOW catching up with Brooklyn’s Sharon Van Etten at the beginning of the year. She was on tour with The National and riding high on the critical acclaim of her first album proper Epic. Here us catch up with Sharon here.

Well now almost a year later, the singer songwriter has announced details of her forthcoming album, Tramp, which will be out on her new label home Jagjaguwar in the new year (February 6 2012).

Van Etten worked with Aaron Dessner from The National on this record, working from his home studio in a leafy part of Brooklyn. Guests on the record include Jenn Wasner from Baltimore duo Wye Oak and the wonderfully ethereal Julianna Barwick... TOW caught up with SVE in a pub near Hyde Park on her recent brief trip through London to talk about conquering this filthy great city, working with Aaron and finally finding a home.
