JUNIP – ” Line Of Fire ” Feat Sharon Van Etten

Posted: May 26, 2023 in MUSIC

José González’s previous band Junip enlisted Sharon Van Etten for a new version of their song “Line of Fire” for the soundtrack to new Disney+ documentary “Wild Life. “I was a fan of José González before I had the opportunity to tour with Junip in 2010,” Sharon says. “I was lucky enough to get to sing with him on stage all those years ago. I was able to witness José and his band go so quickly from sweet and sentimental to direct and piercing through their performances, not to mention how José’s guitar playing and songwriting deliver this specific gut punch that is unique to he and his band’s production.

It was challenging to learn the complicated melody that José wrote and I worked hard to honour his phrasing. It was a welcome reconnection after not having been able to perform with him in some time. A welcomed reunion set to the backdrop of such a beautiful story.”

We toured with Sharon in 2010 and performed a duet towards the end of the run of shows and so it felt natural to reunite when asked to be part of a soundtrack for the National Geographic documentary Wild Life from Oscar-winning filmmakers Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin. It chronicles the close relationship of conservationist Kris Tompkins, the first CEO of outdoor brand Patagonia, and her husband Douglas Tompkins.

New version of the Junip classic “Line Of Fire” featuring a stunning collaboration with acclaimed singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten. Released alongside the Disney+ premiere of the National Geographic documentary ‘Wild Life’ which features the new rendition.
