It's been a long old wait for news of a follow up from Sharon Van Etten to her excellent 2014 record Are We There, but today she has revealed that she'll be releasing a new album called Remind Me Tomorrow through Jagjaguwar on January 18th. It's not as if SVE has been up to nothing in the interim - quite the opposite - as she succinctly puts it in her introduction to Remind Me Tomorrow:

"I want to be a mom, a singer, an actress, go to school, but yeah, I have a stain on my shirt, oatmeal in my hair and I feel like a mess, but I'm here. Doing it. This record is about pursuing your passions."

That humble and lovable determination translates to the lead single from the album, 'Comeback Kid', which immediately comes out swinging in the punchiest and poppiest track Van Etten has yet released. Built atop disco-ish four-on-the-floor beats and chunks of blockbusting synth you can practically hear her flexing her muscles and pounding the punching bag as she sings. Her lyrics focus on the energy of her youth, as she relates to the youngsters roaming the streets and reflects on her teenage years when nothing would perturb her - and resolves to find that spirit inside herself once again.

The album was recorded with John Congleton and features collaborators Heather Woods Broderick, Jamie Stewart, Zachary Dawes, Brian Reitzell, Lars Horntveth, McKenzie Smith, Joey Waronker, Luke Reynolds, and Stella Mozgawa.
