We Are Fine is the third single from Tramp, the new album from Sharon Van Etten, and features a guest performance from Zach Condon of Beirut. The shimmering sound of Sharon Van Ettens Jagjaguwar debut album, Tramp, both defies and illuminates the unsteadiness of a life in flux. Throughout the 14 months of scattered recording sessions, Van Etten was without a home -- crashing with friends and storing her possessions between varied locations. The only constant in Van Etten's life during this time was spent in Aaron Dessner's garage studio.
