ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Angel Olsen Announces New Album ‘Burn Your Fire for No Witness’ Due February 18th, 2014

Recent Jagjaguwar signee 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 (Bathetic), where her sound expanded and her lyrics cut deeper.

Now, Angel offers a new full length album, Burn Your Fire for No Witness out February 18th, 2014 where she further explores a sound familiar, 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 “Forgiven/Forgotten” above or on Soundcloud here.

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