May 2014 brought about the release of Van Etten's fourth record, Are We There on Jagjaguwar. Van Etten self-produced the record with Stewart Lerman. The record includes Torres' Mackenzie Scott, Shearwater's Jonathan Meiburg, Lower Dens' Jana Hunter and Efterklang affiliate Peter Broderick. Van Etten said some of the instruments in the recording of the album were used by John Lennon and Patti Smith. The album was recorded at Hobo Sound Studios in Weehawken, New Jersey and at Electric Lady Studios in New York City.

"The social orbit surrounding Sharon Van Etten has sometimes felt like the world's most exclusive musicians' club, jam-packed with singers, multi-instrumentalists and producers who in the past helped propel a force from within her that others would normally hide from. Whilst collaboration remains her source of creativity, it's no longer the sole-driver for it. The growing pains have subsided, the training wheels have come off and now she is the one steering the ship - Sharon Van Etten is here.

In many ways, like the three before them, her upcoming album, Are We There, is an open book, though depending on what page you open to, that book seems like you're reading the transcripts of a private confession, a relentless satire, or a fictional tale. The most revealing in her new delivery is how she captures an eternal tension in her words, steering them both poetically and provocatively" The 405
