Sharon Van Etten drops stylish video for “Comeback Kid”

Published

Early this month Sharon Van Etten made good on her word of returning to the music scene. She announced a new album titled Remind Me Tomorrow, which is due out January 18. Although it’s a ways away, Van Etten dropped the album’s lead single “Comeback Kid” along with the initial announcement, to give us something to hang onto for a while. It was a surprising sound for the melancholic indie rocker, featuring some synth work amidst a speedy pace. But it remained a welcome return from an artist who remains one of the best at this moment. Remind Me Tomorrow may be months away, but Van Etten is going to keep the buzz going. For today she shared a video for “Comeback Kid” to tide us over a little while longer.

The “Comeback Kid” video matches the surprising shift in sound by surprising us all with Sharon Van Etten’s new look. To better suit what we can now assume is the LP’s style, Van Etten has glammed herself up a bit with an edgier style and attitude. The video sees her channeling a fierceness we haven’t really seen from her before. As her presence gets intense, projects cycle crazily on a wall behind her.

Speaking about the visuals, Sharon Van Etten shared this statement:

“As the lyrics for “Comeback Kid” unfolded, I realized I was talking about many selves: the kid, the adult, the sibling, the friend, the neighbor. I imagined a projector streaming over me of memories, unclear if they are mine or someone else’s, confronted by the disorientation of time and perspective. Jonathan William Turner helped me to convey these struggles of self, forgiveness, and living in the now.”
