New sonic impulses…
22 May 2021
Two golden voices, two great songwriters, two gorgeous ladies finally met
each other in the studio. ANGEL OLSEN and SHARON VAN ETTEN have a
lot in common and admire each other (me too, and when I saw them live,
separately, of course, I fell in love, of course).
Sharon about Angel: “We highway high-fived many times along the way… I finally
got the courage in June of 2020 to reach out to see if she would want to sing together.
I got greedy and quickly sent her a track I had been working on.”
Angel about Sharon: “I’ve met with Sharon here and there throughout the years and have
always felt too shy to ask her what she’s been up to or working on. The song reminded me immediately of getting back to where I started, before music was expected of me, or much
was expected of me, a time that remains pure and real in my heart.”
The magnificent starry-eyed result of the collaboration
is titled LIKE I USED TO. A vocal gem. Made my day.
