In the three years that I’ve been following her, Brooklyn’s Sharon Van Etten has become such a talented musician. Back in 2009, I witnessed her perform her debut album Because I Was In Love, a collection of heartbreaking and haunting indie folk tracks (you can actually read my super old review here). Since then she’s released two more solid albums, both of which show her evolution as an artist and how her music has blossomed from sparse folkishnesss to a much more full-bodied rock sound. Oh yeah, AND she’s also played numerous Late Night TV shows and shared the stage with the likes of The Antlers, The National and St. Vincent. No big deal, right? In all honesty though, it’s been thoroughly wonderful watching her grow.

After touring extensively to support her latest album Tramp, Van Etten will release a deluxe version of it on November 13th via Jagjaguwar. It will include demos of each of the tracks as well as this previously unreleased demo “Tell Me”. The aching acoustic song seems to hearken back to her old days and really places her stunning voice front and center. Check it out below:
