When we spoke to Sharon Van Etten, the beloved singer/songwriter spoke of her next album, which she was considering titling What It Takes. Well, it looks like that didn’t stick, as she has settled on the title of Tramp for her follow-up to 2010’s Epic, which will be released on February 7th via Jagjaguwar.
As expected, the record was produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner in his studio, and the album also features a ton of big-name guests, including Beirut’s Zach Condon, Julianna Barwick, Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner, the Walkmen’s Matt Barrick, and Doveman’s Thomas Bartlett. Below, we have the full tracklisting for you.
To accompany the release, Van Etten will launch a large scale tour, opening in the east for Shearwater and out west for The War On Drugs. Check out the tourdates below.

Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
