Following on from 2014’s acclaimed ‘Are We There‘, Van Etten’s upcoming fifth album is a synth-driven sonic departure that she insists she “didn’t want to be pretty”. Produced by John Congleton, the record was written while the singer-songwriter was pregnant, going to school for psychology, and amid her work appearing in The OA audition and onstage in David Lynch’s revival of Twin Peaks.

Speaking to NME about the sound of the album, Van Etten said: “While writing a lot of this, I was tired of the guitar and felt like I was writing a lot of the same songs. I moved into a practice space with someone who had a couple of keyboards and a synthesiser.

“A lot of the songs were written on a synth or a ‘70s Korg organ while tracking drums to it. It’s a lot darker and there are more beats. It’s not as acoustic driven and the songs are more uptempo. It’ll definitely be a bigger and darker sound, and a lot more electronic-feeling.”

As for lyrical inspiration, she continued: “I’m reflecting on being in an all-round better place and bringing life to Earth during a mix of emotions. Past records have been heartbreak records or break-up records. This is still an album of love songs, but about the state of the world while trying to stay positive for another human being.”

‘Comeback Kid’ will be released on January 18 via Jagjaguwar.
