Listen: She Keeps Bees, "Is What It Is" (feat. Sharon Van Etten)

Listen to the lead single from the duo's upcoming Eight Houses

You may have never heard of She Keeps Bees before, but the duo of Jessica Larrabee and Andy LaPlant will certainly widen their fan base with their upcoming fourth album, Eight Houses, after enlisting the smooth, soulful vocal talents of one Sharon Van Etten (whose latest, Are We there, still gives us shivers). Van Etten lends her vocals to lead single "Is What It Is" where she sings on the lovely hook, adding another dimension to the slow, downcast grower. Peep it below. Eight Houses drops on September 16th via Future Gods in the U.S./Canada, and lands in Europe ten days later via BB*Island.
