Sharon Van Etten releases new song, “Staring at a Mountain”

The ruminative track will feature in the film, ‘Never Rarely Sometimes Always.’

Indie rock artist Sharon Van Etten has just released a brand-new song, “Staring at a Mountain.”

The introspective tune is featured in the indie film Never Rarely Sometimes Always, which Van Etten also appears in.

“The leaves are turning in my mind / They haven’t fallen and I can’t feel time / The wind is capturing me, hair is falling / Covering my eyes / Rise, the wind is turning into movement / And then falling out of time,” the New Jersey native sings plaintively.


The Eliza Hittman-directed film follows two young women, Autumn (Sidney Flanigan) and Skylar (Talia Ryder) who travel to New York City for the former’s abortion. Van Etten appears in the film as Autumn’s mother. Never Rarely Sometimes Always hits theatres this Friday.

The singer’s latest release follows her acclaimed 2019 LP Remind Me Tomorrow and the dark track, “Beaten Down,” which dropped last month.
