Tramp is the third album by American singer–songwriter Sharon Van Etten, released on February 7, 2012. For the recording, Sharon collaborated with Zach Condon, Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner, Julianna Barwick, Walkmen's Matt Barrick, Thomas Bartlett, and Aaron Dessner. Dessner also produced the album and provided the studio. The first track to be released as a single was "Serpents", featuring Aaron and Bryce Dessner, Barwick, Wasner, and Bartlett.
Sharon Van Etten's first proper album, Because I Was in Love, was nudged out into the world in 2009 despite the best efforts of a college boyfriend in Tennessee who had told her she was shit, hid her guitar, and shoved her back home to New Jersey. That album's tracks, and those of the home recordings she also released that year, were sparse, Van Etten's voice sometimes barely above a murmur, as if she were trying to figure out how to make music at the lowest functional volume. Epic pulled in little bits of kickdrum and pedal steel and electric guitar, and ended with "Love More", on which she proclaimed, over a doubled harmonium and wavering synth, "You chained me like a dog in our room. t made me love, it made me love, it made me love more. Van Etten first recorded "Love More" for WXPN and Weathervane Music's Shaking Through web series, which captured the session on video.

Joke or a Lie The shimmering sound of Sharon Van Etten’s Jagjaguwar debut album, 'Tramp', both defies and illuminates the unsteadiness of a life in flux.
