Watch Sharon Van Etten Cover Bruce Springsteen At The Stone Pony
The New Jersey native Sharon Van Etten has just joined the long, long list of indie types who have covered Bruce Springsteen. In her case, she did a soft, emotive solo-piano version of “Drive All Night,” a slow, grand centerpiece from The River. She did it for The A.V. Club’s new video series Pioneering, performing her version at the storied old club the Stone Pony, in Springsteen’s old Asbury Park stomping grounds. Watch her version of the song, along with another video of her talking about Springsteen, below.
Van Etten’s new album Are We There is out 5/27 on Jagjaguwar.
