WATCH NEW VIDEO FOR ANGEL OLSEN’S “FORGIVEN/FORGOTTEN”

NEW ALBUM, BURN YOUR FIRE FOR NO WITNESS, OUT FEBRUARY 18TH ON JAGJAGUWAR

unnamed

As announced last month, Angel Olsen will release her ethereal and powerful new album, Burn Your Fire for No Witnesson February 18, 2014 via Jagjaguwar. Throughout this “collection of songs, grown in a year of heartbreak, travel, and transformation,” Olsen sings with full-throated exultation, admonition, and bold, expressive melody. And, with the help of producer John Congleton, her music now crackles with a churning, rumbling low end and a brighter energy. With Burn Your Fire for No Witness, a more revealing and self-assured Olsen is opening up, allowing us to be in the room with her at the very genesis of these songs, when the thread of creation is most vulnerable and least filtered.

After sharing Burn Your Fire for No Witness‘s first single, “Forgiven/Forgotten,” Olsen now offers a visual representation with the song’s brand new video directed by creative partner, Zia Anger. Olsen and Zia’s collaborative trajectory continues following their work together on videos for 7″ single,“Sweet Dreams,” and Half Way Home‘s “Tiniest Seed.”

I traveled to Asheville with a couple rolls of 16mm film and a Bolex camera. The only idea Angel and I had decided on was that she should be given a chance to act – to perform in a way most people have never seen her perform. Upon arriving I was immediately struck by the beautiful and unruly area of Malvern Hills. Suburbia had never spoken to me like that before. Our idea morphed into a suburban fantasy just as lawless as its backdrop. It is complete with a ‘Freaks and Geeks’-inspired lovers quarrel that ends with the male character physically being hand-scratched out of the film.” – Zia Anger
