Based on her new single Taking Chances, it sounds like Sharon Van Etten is doing just that – she’s taking a few chances musically when compared to her past output. That’s not a bad thing, but it certainly is an interesting thing considering the polished nature of the track.

Since it’s the first taste of her upcoming Are We There LP, there’s a good chance it is indeed indicative of a new direction. We’ll see on May 27, when the record drops via Jagjaguwar.
