Sharon Van Etten has announced a new album.

'We've Been Going About This All Wrong', the follow-up to 2019's 'Remind Me Tomorrow', is due for release on May 6 through Jagjaguwar.

It features Van Etten on guitar, synthesizers, piano, drum machine, wurlitzer, keys and more, supported by musicians from her regular touring band: Jorge Balbi on drums, Devon Hoff on bass, and live musical director Charley Damski on synthesizers and guitars.

Van Etten's recent singles Porta and Used To It will not appear on the new album, and we will not be hearing any advance singles prior to its arrival. She explained:

"I wanted to approach this release differently, to engage my fans in an intentional way, in an effort to present the album as a whole body of work. These ten songs are designed to be listened to in order, at once, so that a much larger story of hope, loss, longing and resilience can be told."

Head below to check out the record's tracklist, trailer and artwork by Michael Schmelling.

'We've Been Going About This All Wrong' tracklist: 

  1. Darkness Fades
  2. Home to Me
  3. I’ll Try
  4. Anything
  5. Born
  6. Headspace
  7. Come Back
  8. Darkish
  9. Mistakes
  10. Far Away

As part of a wider European trek, Sharon Van Etten will bring her Darkness Fades Tour to the UK and Ireland this summer. Later in the year, she'll return to North America for shows with Angel Olsen and Julien Baker on The Wild Hearts Tour, to which extra dates have been added due to demand.
