Sharon Van Etten’s Early Loves

On November 17, Brooklyn-based indie troubadour—and part-time Neflix star—Sharon Van Etten will release (it was) because i was in love, a deluxe vinyl reissue of her striking, stripped-down 2009 debut album, because i was in love. To mark the occasion, she made a Dowsers playlist of the music that fueled its creation.

“The songs on this playlist represent the music I was listening to before, during, and after the writing and recording of because i was in love. These artists were extremely instrumental in the development of my songwriting.”—Sharon Van Etten
