ALBUM RELEASE // Angel Olsen ‘Burn Your Fire For No Witness” Out Now, New European Dates Added In May

Angel Olsen is no stranger to listeners who caught her vibrant and expressive voice in her debut EP Strange Cacti or later on Half Way Home, where her sound expanded and her lyrics cut deeper.

Today, Angel’s debut album on Jagjaguwar, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, is out worldwide.

On the new album, Pitchfork named it Best New Music yesterday, in the UK the album received rave reviews including four stars in The Observer, and NPR’s Bob Boilen named it his “Album of the Week” this week on All Songs Considered writing, “I’ve been living with this music for a bit now. It’s my friend, my comfort; it shakes me, saddens me and lifts me”.

With BYFFNW, Angel further explores a familiar sound, but only widens her vocal range to new expressive heights. She captures both bravery and vulnerability in her war cries bringing the listener closer if they aren’t already sucked into Angel’s crackling fire gaze. Her new album, produced by John Congleton, stokes the fire and aggravates the flames inside of Angel releasing an energy and voice not heard before.

Get a sense of this new sound by listening to a few tracks from the album above or watching her newest video for “Hi-Five” directed by Zia Anger on YouTube, here.

Burn Your Fire for No Witness is available now from your local record store, SC Distribution, Amazon, or on iTunes.

See Angel Olsen on tour starting tonight in Charlottesville at The Southern with all dates listed below.

WATCH // Angel Olsen Shares New “Hi-Five” Video, ‘Burn Your Fire for No Witness’ Out 2/18

We’re extremely excited for Angel Olsen‘s new album out February 18th, and as another teaser for the release, she has shared a new video for “Hi-Five” directed/filmed by Angel’s constant collaborator, Zia Anger. Watch Angel steal your heart and ours once again above or on our YouTube page here.

On the style of the video, director Anger says she was inspired by 1960s and 1970s telecasts:

They were always so wild and psychedelic and humorous from afar. The more you watch them, the more wooden and awkward the performances become. There is a certain loneliness captured. The song ‘Hi-Five’ seems to contain the same sort of duality.
