Video: Sharon Van Etten Performs “Give Out” & “Leonard”

We’ve heard a studio version of “Serpents” and a live take with the National’s Aaron Dessner on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, but now a taste of two more cuts off Sharon Van Etten’s highly anticipated follow-up to one of our favorite records of the past few years, Epic, are here. We’ll have to wait until next month to hear the version put to tape in Dessner’s home studio, but this week Van Etten shared album cuts “Give Out” and “Leonard” in a pair of live renditions for Le Cargo and i-D Online, respectively.

We’ll let these intimate live clips speak for themselves, but suffice it to say, they certainly promise that this LP, Tramp, will be stunning. Watch the clips below:
