One of the first songs recorded for her upcoming new record ‘Remind Me Tomorrow’, Sharon Van Etten now has a video for album track ‘Jupiter 4’.
The video is filmed in black and white and directed by Katherine Dieckmann, who first came into contact with Sharon when she wrote the score for her film ‘Strange Weather’.
Speaking of making the video, Sharon said: “I had been looking forward to collaborating with Katherine again since finishing our work together on her film in 2016. Since wrapping the film, she has not only been a guiding force in my work, but a light and guiding force in my life as well, sharing with me stories of how she and her husband made it work with two kids as artists living in New York and encouraging me to return to my music after my son was born. I asked if she would ever want to make a music video for me. She asked what the mood would feel like and I simply said ‘apocalyptic mom.’ And with that - she said ‘Absolutely.’ That’s why I love her so much.”
Katherine also added: ““It was a magical shoot, one meant to honour ‘Jupiter 4’’s combination of brooding ambience with searing declarations of passion. I still have to ask myself, is the love ‘so real,’ or is it actually unreal? The beauty of the song, and hopefully of the video too, is that it lets that mystery be.”

The track is lifted from new album ‘We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong’.
Born of living through trauma and coming out the other side, ‘We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong’ finds Sharon Van Etten attempting to write her own coping mechanisms.
Very much the most mature Sharon Van Etten offering to date - and perhaps the most musically accomplished, too.
