Brooklyn singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten rounds up famous indie friends for her forthcoming album.

Van Etten has made herself known in indie rock circles with her haunted voice and sadly-strummed odes.

Following last year’s epic, she has drafted in the cream of the US indie scene to help sculpt next year’s third full-length Tramp.

Tramp was recorded at the garage studio of The National’s Aaron Dessner, offered to Van Etten after Dessner and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon covered her song ‘Love More’.

Since then, she has performed with Neko Case and The Antlers, sung on albums by Beirut and Ed Askew, and collaborated with Vernon on the Songs Of The South project.

Throughout the fourteen months recording Tramp, she had drop-ins from Matt Barrick of The Walkmen, Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), Zach Condon of Beirut, Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak, and Julianna Barwick.

The album will be released in February next year on the painfully hip Jagjaguwar label (home to Black Mountain, Bon Iver, GAYNGS, Women, Okkervil River and more).
