  • Sharon Van Etten Announces “Are We There” Anniversary Edition, Shares New Version of “Every Time the Sun Comes Up”

  • American singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten will release the 10th-anniversary edition of the fourth studio album “Are We There” on this Friday (May 31) via Jagjaguwar.

    The original version of “Are We There” was released in 2014 and featured 11 songs, produced by Sharon Van Etten and Stewart Lerman.
    The 10th anniversary edition features an alternate version of “Every Time the Sun Comes Up” and a live version from the Sydney Opera House.

    Sharon Van Etten said about the anniversary of “Are We There” in a statement, “The whole time I was making Are We There, I was commuting to Hobo Sound from an apartment in the city, and I took a train to the bus station and walked from the Lincoln Tunnel to the studio in Weehawken, NJ. Making this record, my bandmates (Doug Keith, Heather Woods Broderick, and Zeke Hutchins) quickly became my family, and I realized I sought refuge in the studio. It was where I felt nurtured. It felt like home. I was able to find myself and I feel like that vulnerability and strength was captured through the collaborations on this album. The name of this album represents, for me, a place I departed from but with an acknowledgment that I haven't yet arrived.”
  • She said of the new version of “Every Time the Sun Comes Up”, “This version of 'Every Time the Sun Comes Up' developed as the band and I were really honing our sound. We were rehearsing for the We've Been Going About This All Wrong Tour, leaning into some of our influences to give the song a more current feel to where we were all creatively at the time. We performed it live and the audience really responded to our new Joy Division-like spin on it. We had the idea to release it to celebrate the Are We There 10-year anniversary and breathe new life into it, which feels like the perfect time.”

  • She shared on social media, “Are We There turns 10 this year, which has had me reflecting on so many things ... am I where I thought I would be in my 40s? how did we expect our lives to unfold over 10 years? from when I wrote the record to now, so much has changed. everything has changed. my mentality, my surroundings, my family, and how I see the world. It's hard to say where “there” was when I wrote the record and if I've reached it yet. So.... I want to ask you all: are we there? I would love to hear your thoughts, stories, ruminations... I myself don't have an answer, but in the past couple weeks i've put together some thoughts on the past and present, on how time has shaped my life. I hope some of it resonates with you.”
