Sharon Van Etten return with new single 'Beaten Down'

After stunning us with her brilliant album 'Remind Me Tomorrow' last year, Sharon Van Etten has now returned with a brand new single.

The new track 'Beaten Down' was produced by John Congleton, and comes accompanied by a wonderful new video, directed by Nicky and Juliana Giraffe at Giraffe Studios.

Speaking about her new offering, the frontwoman said, "‘Beaten Down’ is about love, patience and empathy. It’s about making life-changing choices and remaining strong enough to see them through.”

While the directors of the video added, "Our goal was to create a striking and psychedelic video set in the California desert, a welcoming of Sharon's next chapter here. Upon hearing the song, our minds automatically drifted into stark black and white, fever dreams, dark silhouettes contrasted against a barren desert landscape. Our intention was to give Sharon's song and performance space to breathe and echo. It was important to us that the dancers were strongly connected and we're so lucky to have worked with the talented Huber Twins on this project.”
