Slow Motion Modus For ANGEL OLSEN When Covering ‘GLORIA’

18 July 2021

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.
