Sharon Van Etten released a new album, Remind Me Tomorrow, in January via Jagjaguwar (it was our Album of the Week). Now she has shared a new more bluesy version of the album’s single “Seventeen,” as a duet with Norah Jones. She has also shared a short documentary, entitled Departure, about the creation of the new version and her decision to move away from New York City after living there for 15 years. Van Etten has a son now and it’s time to get out of the city. Both are via Amazon Music and you can check them out below.

Jones had this to say in a press release: “I’m a fan of Sharon as a person and an artist, so I was more than excited to finally get to sing together. I loved her idea to do the song in a different way. It felt really great to be in the studio together, I hope we get to sing more. Singing with her and watching her at the show was breathtaking, she’s a true rock star.”

Previously Van Etten shared Remind Me Tomorrow‘s first single, “Comeback Kid” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), as well as a video for the song. Then she shared another song from the album, “Jupiter 4,” via a video for the song. The compelling tension filled track was all build-up with no release and its dark and mysterious black & white video matched the song’s vibe well. “Jupiter 4” was also one of our Songs of the Week. Then she shared “Seventeen,” via a video for the track that features the singer in New York City, but in the spirit of the song, also flashes back to a 17-year-old version of Van Etten. “Seventeen” was also one of our Songs of the Week. Then she stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform two songs from the album: “Seventeen” on the broadcast show and “You Shadow” as a web-exclusive. Then she performed “Seventeen” on Ellen and did “Comeback Kid” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Then she shared a video for “No One’s Easy to Love.”

Van Etten also co-stars in the Netflix series The OA and season 2 premiered in March (alas the show was later cancelled).
