Sharon Van Etten performs 'Break Me' on US TV – watch Sharon Van Etten Tickets

The singer performed the track from her latest album 'Are We There' on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Sharon Van Etten performed 'Break Me' on US television on Friday night (August 29).

The New York musician played the track from her recent album 'Are We There' on Jimmy Kimmel Live. You can watch footage of the performance at the top of the page, via DIY.

Meanwhile, the singer recently revealed she has "no idea" what she's doing when it comes to playing festivals. Speaking to The Guardian, she explained: "I really have no idea what I'm doing. It's the type of performing where you really see who you connect with and I haven't figured it out yet. I'm still not used to playing festivals. At a venue, I think people are there to see me, to listen and maybe feel a little bit. Rather than them getting wasted [like festival-goers], it's more wine-drunk – let's all get sad together! – but in a good way."

Sharon Van Etten will headline her own shows in the UK this November. The shows, part of a wider world tour, involve the singer-songwriter playing Manchester Cathedral on November 24, Glasgow Art School on November 25 and Birmingham Library on November 26.

In May, Van Etten released 'Are We There', the follow-up to her 2012 album 'Tramp'. Speaking to NME previously about the album, she revealed: "I'm less censored every time I do a record. I'm like, 'I think this is OK. I don't think I'm freaking out. The only one I'm freaking out is me.' This is really intense stuff to write and sing about."
