Sharon van Etten performs on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Last night, Sharon Van Etten played the song "Serpents" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (video below), debuting a new band featuring a guest appearance by Aaron Dessner (the National). The song is from Van Etten's forthcoming 3rd LP, Tramp, which is slated for release on 2/7/12 via Jagjaguwar. It's also been released as a single b/w non-album track "Mike McDermott."

The performance featured a more amplified sound palette than her previous work, adding tinges of indie rock to Van Etten's alt-folk style, with the songwriter inhabiting a bolder demeanor fronting the proceedings. Add the key ingredient of stardom's formula - a memorable lead-off single like "Serpents" - andTramp appears poised to be Van Etten's breakout release. Congratulations on a very successful network TV debut!
