Sharon Van Etten gives fans a deep cut from her recently released LP We've Been Going About This All Wrong. On Wednesday, the indie rocker released "Never Gonna Change" as she announced the arrival of the deluxe version of All Wrong with four additional songs.
On the simple yet emotional track, Van Etten sings "I'm never gonna change/Hear the voice deepens as it pain," but also about how she "makes her son start to change." Van Etten's son was a constant presence on their last album. She spoke to Rolling Stone about how her child, who recently turned five, is growing up.

"I want him to know I've been thinking about him," she said. "There are some hidden messages in there for my son just to remind him that I did my best. I hope that when he's old enough to listen to the songs and read between the lines, he'll know I did everything I could."
She added, "But the message is also for people who feel the same way."

Co-produced by Van Etten and Daniel Knowles, the deluxe LP will include the singles "Porta" and "Used to It," which they released as standalone singles. It will also include "Never Gonna Change" and "When I Die".
"With this [album], it's more like, 'Yeah, that's hard. I don't have the answers but I'm trying to find out. I know you are too,'" she said in her Rolling Stone interview. "More like a collective 'What the fuck?'"
According to a Rolling Stone review, "Van Etten seems more committed than ever to gently tweaking and playing with her time-tested formula."
Van Etten will be touring Australia and New Zealand this December alongside Angel Olsen and Julien Baker.
