The track was originally written for HBO documentary Baby God.

Following the release of ‘Porta’ in February, Sharon Van Etten has shared her second single of 2022, ‘Used To It’.

Originally written for HBO documentary Baby God, Sharon says, “Ultimately, the film team changed their musical direction, but I found myself welcomely challenged to the idea of writing a song about the concept of family, connection through blood, nature vs. nurture, while attempting to incorporate ideas of love and the complexities of science and technology.

“I am grateful for this song to be able to have a new life, relating more to the times we have all been living through and redefining the meaning of this song by focusing on the positives of seeking connection and understanding what family means to the individual.”

Accompanied by a new video created by Sharon’s musical director and bandmate Charley Damski, and featuring dancer Hayden J Frederick, she adds, “Together, they helped me convey the feelings of internal struggles, while also finding space for oneself and embracing that pain in order to move on.”
