Sharon Van Etten "Just Like Blood"

Sharon Van Etten "Just Like Blood"
Prolific singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten is set to follow up last year's Are We There with a new EP titled I Don't Want to Let You Down. And although the new set of songs doesn't arrive until next month, new single "Just Like Blood" has now surfaced online.
 
True to her signature style, it's a sombre, slow-building number that starts off with piano and swells to incorporate a loose drum beat and woozy guitars. It's her emotive vocal delivery — an instrument on its own — that really steals the show on this one.
 
I Don't Want to Let You Down arrives on June 9 via Jagjaguwar, but you can give "Just Like Blood" a listen below, right now.
