In celebration of the ten year anniversary of her fourth album, Sharon Van Etten has announced Are We There (Anniversary Edition) and a 7" release of “Every Time The Sun Comes Up”.

Sharon Van Etten has revealed the new, upbeat alternative version of "Every Time The Sun Comes Up", with an accompanying lyric video. Recorded remotely, Van Etten asked her drummer, Jorge Balbi, to produce it based off of the live arrangement the band has been playing for a few years now.

“This version of ‘Every Time The Sun Comes Up’ developed as the band and I were really honing our sound,” comments Van Etten. “We were rehearsing for the We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong Tour, leaning into some of our influences to give the song a more current feel to where we were all creatively at the time. We performed it live and the audience really responded to our new Joy Division-like spin on it. We had the idea to release it to celebrate the Are We There 10-year anniversary and breathe new life into it, which feels like the perfect time.”

The Are We There (Anniversary Edition) will be available in standard black, grey, and silver tri-colour split vinyl and the 7” will feature "Every Time The Sun Comes Up (Alternate Version)" backed with "Every Time The Sun Comes Up (Live at Sydney Opera House)."

Are We There (Anniversary Edition), will be released on 31 May and “Every Time The Sun Comes Up” 7" vinyl release will be out on 23 August via Jagjaguwar.
