Marissa Nadler and Sharon Van Etten Share an Exclusive Acoustic Video

Marissa Nadler is set to release For My Crimes come September 28, and, to celebrate, she has an exclusive acoustic performance video to share via TIDAL.

Nadler and Sharon Van Etten teamed up for the song “I Can’t Listen to Gene Clark Anymore,” off of the upcoming LP, and filmed an intimate version of it with their friend, musician Heather Woods Broderick. Check out that lovely video below, as well as Nadler’s thoughts on the song and collaboration.

On the song… With memories, sensory stimuli can animate the inanimate and forever assign meaning to almost anything. For me, this often happens with songs or musicians that have soundtracked a particular a time in my life. One glimmer of certain songs can bring me right back to childhood, for instance.

This song is about a more recent memory, but the emotional time travel is real nonetheless. I think a lot of people can relate to the sentiment expressed in this song regardless of the specificity of the musical reference. Or at least that is my hope. For me, it’s Gene Clark — for others –  someone or something else. But, we’ve all been there. I like to turn those feelings into something beautiful as a way to process them and freeze them forever in time and space.

I was over the moon to have Sharon Van Etten add vocals to this song. For me, because this is a fairly universal sentiment, I liked the idea of different voices expressing the same emotion. And to have it be one of my favorite singers and songwriters was a very cathartic experience for which I am truly grateful.

On the video… We recaptured these harmonies some months after recording in this intimate lo-fi back yard video, thanks in no small part to Heather Woods Broderick, whose music I also love, who was behind the camera.
