Sharon Van Etten Knows Emotions Run ‘Just Like Blood’ on Slurry New Single

Last month, Sharon Van Etten announced that she’d soon release her I Don’t Want to Let You Down EP (not to be confused with the Rita Ora song “I Will Never Let You Down,” of course). Now the husky-voiced singer’s shared “Just Like Blood,” a stirring, deceptively simple new song from the project. Armed with only an organ, a piano, and a softly beaten drum, Van Etten keeps her word to a drawling slur: “We ask ourselves / Where we are now / Here we are now / What that means…” she trails off, demanding continued attention. Hear it via NPR, and pick up her new EP on June 9.
