Watch: Sharon van Etten shares a live video for ‘Keep’

Sharon van Etten shares a live video for ‘Keep’

She’s set to release a deluxe version of her debut album next week.

A few weeks ago, Sharon van Etten announced that she would be reissuing a deluxe edition of her debut album.

‘(it was) because i was in love’ is coming out on 17th November through Vinyl Me Please, and it set to contain two bonus tracks and other new elements. At the time, she shared ‘I Wish I Knew’, but now she’s shared an intimate live video for ‘Keep’, directed by Sean Durkin.

Sharon said: “Sean mentioned to me years ago that filming me live, performing, in my element, a single shot, would be intriguing to him. I was nervous about the idea then, but as we decided to reissue because I was in love and revisiting the sentiment behind the songs, a live performance of where I am today would truly be the perfect way to reintroduce people to these early songs.

“They still ring true to me and they still come from an honest place. I’m just older now, with more perspective, but that’s the only real difference. It became something more beautiful than I could have imagined”.
