Song of the Week: Sharon Van Etten – “Comeback Kid”

Sharon Van Etten returns with a synth-heavy stomper!

It’s been an adventurous few years since we last heard from the singer-songwriter. In between her 2015 EP, I Don’t Want To Let You Down, and “Comeback Kid,” Van Etten has written a movie score, started acting, went back to school and became a mother. That’s a lot of life experience in just four years!

With her new, upbeat single, you could feel the energy of her recent successes pouring out of the music and her voice. Unlike the melancholy guitar or piano-based songs she’s known for, Van Etten infuses “Comeback Kid” with a bouncy rhythm and bright synth lines. It’s a great, fun number that’s sure to brighten your day.

“Comeback Kid” is the lead single off Van Etten’s new album, Remind Me Tomorrow, out on Jan. 18, 2019.
