Sharon Van Etten will release a new EP called I Don’t Want To Let You Down this June. Among the many collaborators are the War On Drugs’ Adam Granduciel and Dave Hartley, Megafaun’s Brad Cook, and Ben Folds Five’s Darren Jessee (who joined Van Etten’s touring band last year). A press release touts the five-song set as more of a mini-album than a between-projects stopgap. Its title track, which Van Etten performed on Ellen back in January, suggests that I Don’t Want To Let You Down will carry all the musical power and emotional weight we’ve come to expect from Van Etten. Listen below.
01 “I Don’t Want To Let You Down”
02 “Just Like Blood”
03 “I Always Fall Apart”
04 “Pay My Debts”
05 “Tell Me” [Live]
I Don’t Want To Let You Down is out 6/9 via Jagjaguwar. Get the title track instantly when you pre-order the EP at iTunes.
