LISTEN: Sharon Van Etten Shares “Words,” a New Song for the Upcoming Tig Notaro Documentary
The documentary Tig hits Netflix this Friday.
Van Etten—a fan of Notaro—wrote the new track specifically for the documentary, which follows the life of the comedian after the now-legendary set she performed in the wake of her breast cancer diagnosis and the death of her mother.
As you can probably guess, “Words” is a fittingly soft, mournful ballad. In the song, which channels the subtle beauty of early Beach House, Van Etten sings along with a soft piano and a ticking drum machine. Give it a listen below, and brace your heart for the documentary.
Tig is out July 17. Watch the trailer below.
