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.

If you missed it, see more of Angel in her recent NPR Music Tiny Desk Session or her teaser for her full La Blogothèque session on YouTube here.

Pre-order Angel’s new album Burn Your Fire for No Witness via Amazon, iTunes, your local record store, or SC Distribution.

LISTEN // WSJ Speakeasy Premieres Angel Olsen’s Second Single “Hi-Five”, New Album Out February 18th

Earlier today WSJ Speakeasy premiered a new singleHi-Five” by Angel Olsen from her upcoming release, Burn Your Fire for No Witness. On the track, Angel explained, “To lay it out simply: ‘Hi-Five’ could very well be a song about acquiring a little belief, a little trust, despite a lonely attitude. In fact, we are all lonely sometimes — it’s not unnatural, it’s not unfamiliar, it’s not a pity. Sometimes it’s good to remind a friend of that.” With those thoughts in mind listen to the second single above with visuals by constant collaborator Zia Anger or on our Soundcloud / YouTube channel.

Pre-order Angel’s new album Burn Your Fire for No Witness via Amazon, iTunes, your local record store, or Jagjaguwar.
