Sharon Van Etten has announced epic Ten—a double album celebrating her 2010 LP epic. The double album includes the original record and an LP of covers featuring Fiona Apple, Lucinda Williams, Big Red Machine, Courtney Barnett with Vagabon, and more. Today (March 4), Van Etten has released Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner’s cover of “A Crime.” Check it out below and scroll down for the full tracklist.
“Sharon is one of my favorite songwriters and I’ve been very lucky to get to collaborate with her many times over the years,” Dessner said in a press release. “Recording ‘A Crime’ with Justin, more than 10 years after we covered ‘Love More’ at MusicNOW with my brother Bryce—and thinking about all our shared memories—it felt like coming full circle. It’s an honor to be able to pay tribute to Sharon and her incredible songs. We felt like the door should be about to fall off the hinges of this version and I think it sounds like that.”
epic Ten is out digitally April 16 and physically June 11 via Ba Da Bing. Each Thursday leading up to epic Ten’s release, Van Etten will share the album’s next cover song.
Van Etten has also announced epic Ten: the documentary and concert that will benefit the Los Angeles venue Zebulon. The film, which streams April 16 and 17, features Van Etten and her band performing epic in its entirety at Zebulon.
