From a gentle, yet powerful beginning to an upward release of strings and gripping expressions, Angel Olsen bears a collection of emotions on her latest release, “Lark.”
The second single from the upcoming Oct. 4 album All Mirrors, Olsen said in a press release the song took “many years” to complete, exercising emotions related to struggles personally and as a musician.
“The disjointed feelings and verses of this song began to make sense as a way for me to exercise a kind of journey through grieving, a kind of personal struggle,” Olsen said in the release. “The message of the song developed at first from an argument I once had with someone about trust and support. Later, I pulled from recurring themes in my life as a musician and as a human that dreams for a living. It’s easy to promise the world to those we love, but what about when our dreams change and values split?”
Olsen will begin a North American tour in support of All Mirrors Oct. 30. She’ll be in Chicago at the Riviera Theatre Nov. 11.
