In a recent edition of Progress Report, Sharon Van Etten spoke with our T. Cole Rachel about her new LP, Tramp. Talking about the new record, Van Etten said:
It’s a lot more diverse. There are more rock songs but there are also a lot of really sparse songs. They’re also more confident than the last record. I feel like the last year I’ve grown a lot and I feel more secure in writing and performing and I think most people just as they get older grow up a little bit hopefully.
And the record itself reflects these aspirations; it’s more assertive — and possibly more impressive — release than her debut Epic. Head over to NPR for the stream of Tramp. It’s out 2/7 on Jagjaguwar.
