Today, Sharon Van Etten announces her sixth studio album, We got it all wrong, which will be released on May 6 via Jagjaguwar. The 10-track version mediates about self, the world, and how to protect what’s important from forces beyond our control. According to a press release, We got it all wrong “articulates the beauty and power that can be salvaged from our wreckage.”

Like his albums epic and are we there the new LP was co-produced with Daniel Knowles and recorded primarily by Van Etten in his custom-built home studio in Los Angeles. On the album, Van Etten handles guitar, synthesizers, piano, drum machine, Wurlitzer, keyboards and more. She is backed by Jorge Balbi on drums, Devon Hoff on base, and live music director Charley Damski on synthesizers and guitar.

Unlike many such releases and his own previous releases, Van Ettan’s recent singles “Porta” and “Used To It” will not appear on the album. “I wanted to approach this release differently, to engage my fans intentionally, with the goal of presenting the album as a body of work,” Van Etten said in a press release. “These ten songs are designed to be listened to in order, at a time, so that a much larger story of hope, loss, longing and resilience can be told.”

Van Ettan went on to talk about the artistic direction of the album as a whole. She commented on the album cover saying, “I wanted to convey that in an image with me walking away from everything…not necessarily brave, not necessarily sad, not necessarily happy.”

This month, Van Etten is set to give a series of dates in the South with the support of Mia Joy before leaving for his Darkness Fades tour in Europe, followed by The Wild Hearts tour with Angel Olsen, Julien Baker and Spencer. Find tickets for shows here.
