Sharon Van Etten streams ‘Taking Chances’ video – watch

The track is the first to be taken from her new album 'Are We There?'

Sharon Van Etten is currently streaming the video for her new single, ‘Taking Chances’.

The video was directed by Michael Palmieri and plays homage to Agnès Varda’s 1962 film Cleo from 5 to 7. The mystical promo sees Van Etten reading tarot cards. Speaking about the video, Palmieri commented: “I usually take time to mull over ideas before coming up something decent to share with an artist, but this one just came out immediately.”

The song features on Van Etten’s new album, ‘Are We There?’, which is set for release on May 26. She will support the release of the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Tramp’ with a one-off UK show at London’s KOKO on June 5, and will play Green Man Festival in August.
