Sharon Van Etten announces 'epic Ten' anniversary release

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of her iconic studio album 'epic' this year, Sharon Van Etten has now announced her plans for a new collection of covers, arriving next month.

The new release 'epic Ten' will include an array of renditions coming from IDLES, Fiona Apple, Courtney Barnett and many more, is being previewed by Big Red Machine's take on 'A Crime', and is set to be released on the 16th April via Ba Da Bing.

Speaking about the new offering, Aaron Dessner of Big Red Machine said, “Sharon is one of my favorite songwriters and I've been very lucky to get to collaborate with her many times over the years. Recording ‘A Crime’ with Justin Vernon, more than 10 years after we covered ‘Love More’ at Music Now with my brother Bryce - and thinking about all our shared memories - it felt like coming full circle. It's an honor to be able to pay tribute to Sharon and her incredible songs. We felt like the door should be about to fall off the hinges of this version and I think it sounds like that."

While adding about the new album, Sharon said, “epic represents a crossroads for me as an artist -- going from intern to artist at Ba Da Bing, from solo folk singer to playing with a band for the first time and beginning to play shows on tour where people showed up. I am in awe of the artists who wanted to participate in celebrating my anniversary and reissue, from young inspiring musicians, to artists who took me under their wing, who I met on tour, and to artists I’ve looked up to since I was a teenager. Each one of these artists continue to influence my writing and provide a sense of camaraderie during this new era of sharing music.”
