Sharon Van Etten – “Taking Chances”

In preparation of the release of her forthcoming album, Are We There, Sharon Van Etten has shared a new single titled “Taking Chances.” On this song, Van Etten experiments with some smooth R&B-tinged elements and strays from her usual sound, exchanging the acoustic guitar for an electric one, but manages to not take the spotlight away from her gorgeous vocals.

Van Etten will also be hitting the road soon, the dates of which you can see below. Are We There will be released on May 27.
