Sharon Van Ettten announces new EP ‘I Don’t Want To Let You Down’

The New York singer’s new release is set to feature guest appearances from members of The War on Drugs.

New York musician Sharon Van Etten has announced a new EP, ‘I Don’t Want To Let You Down’. The five-track EP is pencilled in for release on June 8th via Jagjaguwar. Van Etten previously gave the title track its first airing on Ellen back in January, and it’ll mark her first release since her fourth studio album ‘Are We There’ which came out in 2014.

‘I Don’t Want To Let You Down’ features guest appearances from Adam Granduciel and Dave Hartley of The War On Drugs. Van Etten self-produced the EP with Stewart Lerman (Sufjan Stevens, David Byrne, St. Vincent) as her co-producer. The EP finishes with a live recording of ‘Tell Me,’ which was previously only available on the expanded version of her third album ‘Tramp’
