Confronting dark themes sparked by a turbulent past two years on new album We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong (released in its entirety in May with no advance singles), Sharon Van Etten has unveiled suitably unsettling visuals for standout industrial-pop anthem 'Headspace'. Directed by Ashley Connor, the leather-clad US songwriter is joined in her stylishly minimal video by dancers Coco Karol and Miguel Angel Guzmán — writhing around on a bed as Van Etten is consumed by the omnipresent white glow of a monitor screen (reminding this viewer of Mike Teavee's tragicomic fate in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). About to embark on an extensive tour of her homeland with Angel Olsen and Julien Baker, experience Van Etten's 'Headspace' below [content warning: strobing imagery]...

“When I was writing this song, I wanted to talk about domesticity and intimacy frustrations under the tensions of working at home and seeking connection while being tied to our devices and still trying to reach each other as lovers, parents, humans… Reminding each other that there is still a primal attraction even in the midst of the mundane and repetition of everyday life.” — Sharon Van Etten

'We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong' is out now on vinyl LP, CD and major streaming services via Jagjaguwar.
