After the success of 2012’s Tramp, expectations are pretty high for Sharon Van Etten’s next album; if Taking Chances is anything to go by, it might be safe to start assuming those expectations will be met.

Taking Chances features Van Etten’s familiar vocal mix of steel and vulnerability, while the production has taken on a more spectral sheen, less earthbound than before.

Are We There is out on May 26th in the UK, and May 27th in the US on Jagjaguwar.
