SHARON VAN ETTEN – ” We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong ” 

Posted: May 2, 2022 in MUSIC

Sharon Van Etten has always been the kind of artist who helps people make sense of the world around them, and her sixth album, “We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong“, concerns itself with how we feel, mourn, and reclaim our agency when we think the world — or at least, our world might be falling apart. How do we protect the things most precious to us from destructive forces beyond our control? How do we salvage something worthwhile when it seems all is lost? And if we can’t, or we don’t, have we loved as well as we could in the meantime?

Did we try hard enough? In considering these questions and her own vulnerability in the face of them, Van Etten creates a stunning meditation on how life’s changes can be both terrifying and transformative. “We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong” articulates the beauty and power that can be rescued from our wreckages.”
