Sharon Van Etten is releasing a deluxe edition of her 2009 debut album, because i was in love.

Called (it was) because i was in love, Van Etten says, “It was an innocent and beautiful record, which some of my newer fans may not even know about. This seemed like the perfect time to remix and remaster it, and give it a new life.”


The album arrives as a Vinyl Me Please exclusive (pre-order available November 9) and via Van Etten’s online shop. It will be available digitally everywhere.
