SHARON VAN ETTEN SHARES "MAGIC CHORDS" VIDEO & PLAYS LATER...WITH JOOLS HOLLAND U.S. TOUR KICKS OFF OCTOBER 25TH

 

U.S. TOUR KICKS OFF OCTOBER 25TH

Since we last announced any Sharon Van Etten news, Ms. SVE has been a busy lady touring the U.S. and Europe, shooting her second music video for Tramp, performing on the acclaimed Later...With Jools Holland, laying down vocals for a range of exciting projects, including collaborating with J Mascis on a John Denver tribute and Rufus Wainwright for a holiday compilation (news on this and more will revealed in the coming weeks), ramping up for her final North American tour of 2012 (including arranging a slew of special guests for the Town Hall show in NYC on Nov. 15) and planning her debut in Australia.

If you've seen Sharon in concert over the last seven months, you'll have noticed the live performance of one of Tramp's standout tracks, "Magic Chords," as particularly captivating. Rick Alverson (director of the controversial and provocative "The Comedy" which was accepted In Competition at the Sundance Film Festival this year) presents this song in an entirely different light with his video for this song. Shot on location just outside of Bloomington, IN last month and featuring Sharon as a disturbingly stoic puritan figure with visions of naked bodies in piles, the "Magic Chords" video is surprisingly meditative for its eye-catching stills. It premiered this morning via Pitchfork and you can watch it below.
