Courtney Barnett and Vagabon have teamed up again to cover Sharon Van Etten‘s track ‘Don’t Do It’.
The track is taken from the forthcoming 10th anniversary edition of Van Etten’s 2010 album ‘Epic’, which features a handful of artists covering tracks from the record.
With a new cover dropping every Thursday until the album’s release on 16th April, we’ve already had versions from IDLES, Shamir and Big Red Machine.
“epic represents a crossroads for me as an artist,” Sharon explains. “Going from intern to artist at Ba Da Bing, from solo folk singer to playing with a band for the first time and beginning to play shows on tour where people showed up. I am in awe of the artists who wanted to participate in celebrating my anniversary and reissue, from young inspiring musicians, to artists who took me under their wing, who I met on tour, and to artists I’ve looked up to since I was a teenager. Each one of these artists continue to influence my writing and provide a sense of camaraderie during this new era of sharing music.”
