Last week, Sharon Van Etten announced a long-awaited follow-up to 2014's Are We There, Remind Me Tomorrow.
Van Etten is a singer and songwriter from New Jersey who released her debut studio album, Because I Was in Love, in 2009 after a string of self-recorded and self-released albums. I've loved everything she's put out (and seen her live at any opportunity I got). Her music is personal and emotional, underlied by a strong voice with a melancholic bent... a bit more flowery than I try to get here, but I do love her so much.
She's taken the last few years off (other than reissuing that first album) and started pursuing a degree in psychology, started acting (you can catch her on Netflix's The OA), and had a child. It hasn't been a long absence, but a very welcome return none-the-less.
She announced Remind Me Tomorrow on October 2 and released the first single, "Comeback Kid."
The album is scheduled for released on January 18 of next year!
