Sharon Van Etten in London church

Yesterday, Sharon Van Etten shared “Every Time The Sun Comes Up,” the tough and pretty song that ends her forthcoming LP Are We There. And during a recent session for NME, she played a live acoustic version of the song in Islington, London’s Emmanuel Church, with one person accompanying her on backing vocals and some sort of lap-synth doohickey. The song loses something, I suppose, without its elaborate orchestration, but it loses less than you’d think. Watch the performance below.

Are We There is out 5/27 on Jagjaguwar.

  1. The “one person” is Heather Woods Broderick. She’s playing one of those Omnichord doohickeys.
