Netflix will debut Tig, the moving documentary about comedian Tig Notaro, on Friday, and the film will feature a stunning new Sharon Van Etten song.
Van Etten, known for her heart-heavy indie folk sound, penned the track specifically for the doc, which begins at Notaro’s famous stand-up set during which she spoke about the sudden death of her mother and breast cancer diagnosis and ends at another show a year later.
Van Etten’s song, “Words,” which debuted on Vulture on Tuesday, and echoes Notaro’s comedic style: a bit raw and moving, but hopeful.
