ANGEL OLSEN

Very often, the move from containment to connection is a difficult one. After all, there's a lot at stake – one's sense of self, most importantly – but sometimes, it comes naturally and easily. For Missouri-born, singer-songwriter and guitarist Angel Olsen, the recording of her second album was a relaxed and enjoyable process, despite the fact that she was working on her own, highly personal material in creative collaboration for the first time, with musicians she'd been playing with for barely six months. That the three are now a band proper says much about not only their talent, but also the singer's desire to push her extraordinarily compelling songs into new territory and watch them develop.

RELEASE // BYFFNW Deluxe Edition Out Now, Watch “Windows” Dir. By Rick Alverson, On Tour In December


“I gave him total freedom to set the tone and I wanted only to be present within it. I wanted to make something cinematic and forward, and I believe he did that here.”

- Angel Olsen on Rick Alversons “Windows” video

This digital-only release includes the tracks “All Right Now”, “White Water”, “Only With You”, “May As Well”, and “Endless Road”.

LISTEN // Angel Olsen Shares New “May As Well” Via NPR Music, BYFFNW Deluxe Out 11/18





“When it came out in February, I told friends that the Angel Olsen album, Burn Your Fire For No Witness, was my favorite of the year so far. Now, here in late October, my love for that record has only grown deeper. The songs are sullen at times, on fire at others. All are memorable. It’s one of those perfect records. Now we have more to love from Angel Olsen.”
