Slow Motion Modus For ANGEL OLSEN When Covering ‘GLORIA’

18 July 2021

Artist: ANGEL OLSEN
New EP: AISLES
A 6-track cover EP of 80s hits
(tracklist below)
Out: 20 August

Taster: GLORIA (not the Van Morrison song)
Original: written and performed by Italian
songster Umberto Tozzi

American singer/actress Laura Branigan scored
a big hit with her 1982 synth-pop take of Gloria.
It was actually her version that connected Olsen
with the song.

Olsen: “I’d heard ‘Gloria’ for the first time at a family Christmas
gathering and was amazed at all the aunts who got up to dance.
I imagined them all dancing and laughing in slow motion, and
that’s when I got the idea to slow the entire song down and try it
out in this way.”

From peppy and uptempo to slow and soothing.

Enjoy here…

Safety Dance by Men Without Hats
If You Leave by OMD

When Two Golden Voices Meet You Get Magic – Listen To ANGEL OLSEN And SHARON VAN ETTEN

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.

Enjoy

ANGEL OLSEN Enchants With Strings Symphony From Upcoming Box Set

New sonic impulses…

23 April 2021

Artist: ANGEL OLSEN
New album: SONGS OF THE LARK AND OTHER MEMORIES
A Box Set featuring her 2019 album All Mirrors and the 2020
full-length Whole New Mess, but also a bonus LP with remixes,
alternate tracks, and a cover of Roxy Music’s ‘More Than This.’

Track: ALIVE AND DYING (WAVING, SMILING)
The second taster from the upcoming box. It’s an enchanting,
strings-symphonic reinterpretation of sad ballad Waving, Smiling
from last year’s Whole New Mess album.

“It’s very me. I will always nosedive into love, and suffering can definitely
come with that. When I hear this version the strings really bring the song
to its necessary bittersweet boiling point,”
says Olsen.

Like an angel…
