Sharon Van Etten presented a version of her song “DsharpG” covered by singer-songwriter Shamir. The track is set to appear on the upcoming 10th anniversary edition of Van Etten’s album, epic, dubbed epic Ten, and due out digitally on April 16 and physically on June 11 via Ba Da Bing.

Van Etten announced epic Ten earlier this month and previewed the double LP with Big Red Machine (Aaron Dessner and Justin Vernon) covering “A Crime.” She’s also released Lucinda Williams doing “Save Yourself.” Additionally, the record contains covers from Fiona Apple, Courtney Barnett and more along with Shamir’s version of “DsharpG.”

Sharon Van Etten spoke about Shamir in a statement. Read her words below:

I was drawn to Shamir’s music by the immediate authenticity and originality of his voice and instrumentation choices. It felt simultaneously throwback and very here and now. So many genres melting into one another, I couldn’t peg it and I loved every minute of the wild ride. Not to mention that his vocal range is from another universe and his arrangements are dark and stormy. Self admittedly, I have a harder time keeping up with music today, but Shamir’s music stands out as truly original and a force to be reckoned with in his reimagining of a time where I grew up fondly, angsty and dreaming…
