Sharon Van Etten covers Nine Inch Nails for Suicide Prevention Month
“It doesn’t make you a weak person for talking about your darker times, you know. It actually makes you stronger by being vulnerable and open and sharing who you are with the people you care about.”
On covering Nine Inch Nails, Van Etten said:
"I was the cliché middle child and always felt misunderstood, and then the oldest brother was the one that I connected to the most with music. When I was learning to play guitar, he gave me a box of cassettes. By the time 'Hurt' came on, I just remember connecting to it so much but also realizing that my brother had listened to it, and we’d never really talked about any deep feelings, but we always shared music. It was my first sign that my brother was trying to connect with me on a more emotional level than just “we’re sharing music.”
