Sharon Van Etten and an orchestra covered LCD Soundsystem’s “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” for the BBC
When she’s not working on her hotly-anticipated new record, singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten is making select performances around the globe, and this month she appeared in the BBC Proms concert series for a revue-style show at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The theme was “New York: Sound of a City,” and featured a variety of artists from NYC — Hercules and Love Affair, serpentwithfeet, Nifty Scott — performing backed by the Heritage Orchestra and conductor Jules Buckley. For Van Etten’s performance, she covered the LCD Soundsystem ballad “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” from 2006’s Sound of Silver.
