    Van Etten struggles with social anxiety and panic attacks, though she's figured out ways to manage them — one of them is asking a friend to talk to her. As she was working on "We Are Fine" she realized she wanted the song to be closer to the way she experiences an attack, by adding a voice. "We Are Fine" is a duet with Beirut's Zach Condon, who has social anxiety, too.

    Sharon Van Etten: "I wrote the song about a friend talking me through a panic attack. [In] moving to New York City and doing what I do, social anxiety is a really ridiculous kind of curse to have. But I met people along the way who deal with it — performers as well — and they are learning to deal with it daily and deal with it in different ways. When I first started working in New York, I started working at Ba Da Bing [Records]. I became friends with Zach Condon. He suffers from social anxiety as well. We've wanted to work with each other for a while, but our schedules were rarely on the same plane. I sang on his last record and he said, "I would love to do the same for you if you can find space for me.""

    Sharon Van Etten (who struggles with social anxiety) wrote the song "We Are Fine" after a friend helped her through a panic attack. Says Van Etten about her anxiety: "I just learned how to acknowledge it. If I start panicking a little bit, I just talk through it with somebody. I think one thing that I can't do is escape it. I can't do things to prevent it from happening. But I think understanding when it's happening and talking myself through it and breathing through it and being around people that know what's going on."
