To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the release of ‘epic’, Sharon Van Etten has announced brand new double LP ‘epic Ten’, which features artists Sharon admires covering the songs!
Set for release digitally on 16th April and physically on 11th June via Ba Da Bing, Big Red Machine’s cover of ‘A Crime’ is out today. “Sharon is one of my favorite songwriters and I’ve been very lucky to get to collaborate with her many times over the years,” Aaron Desner says. “Recording ‘A Crime’ with Justin, more than 10 years after we covered ‘Love More’ at Music Now with my brother Bryce - and thinking about all our shared memories - it felt like coming full circle. It’s an honor to be able to pay tribute to Sharon and her incredible songs. We felt like the door should be about to fall off the hinges of this version and I think it sounds like that.”
Alongside the double LP, a documentary and concert stream will be available on 16th and 17th April, where Sharon will perform ‘epic’ in its entirety from Zebulon LA. Tickets are available here.
“’epic’ represents a crossroads for me as an artist - going from intern to artist at Ba Da Bing, from solo folk singer to playing with a band for the first time and beginning to play shows on tour where people showed up,” Sharon says. “I am in awe of the artists who wanted to participate in celebrating my anniversary and reissue, from young inspiring musicians, to artists who took me under their wing, who I met on tour, and to artists I’ve looked up to since I was a teenager. Each one of these artists continue to influence my writing and provide a sense of camaraderie during this new era of sharing music.”
