New album to come September 2nd from Angel Olsen: “MY WOMAN”

Following the release of her last record in 2014, Burn Your Fire For No Witness, comes Angel Olsen’s latest project, MY WOMAN, due out September 2nd on Jagjaguwar. On this new record, Olsen still intoxicates her listeners with her longing vocals, sense of rock and grunge and her simultaneous understanding of soft, reflective songwriting. The album is organized with the A side tracks more themed to the upfront, pop n’ rock we know her so well for and the B side is decorated with longer, more stretched out tracks, indicative of her softer side. Justin Raisen (Charli XCX, Sky Ferreira, Santigold) produced MY WOMAN and it features guest artist Seth Kauffman on guitar in addition to Olsen’s guitarist Stewart Bronaugh and drummer Joshua Jaeger.

Before releasing her latest single and music video, “Shut Up Kiss Me”, Olsen released a teaser trailer for the track, “Intern”:

 

The first single to come from MY WOMAN is “Shut Up Kiss Me”, a more in-your-face track in comparison to “Intern”, thus it lies on the A side of the record. Again Olsen is outfitted with the shiny silver bob that was featured in the trailer for “Intern”, perhaps a theme for MY WOMAN. The goofy video features nothing short of some serious attitude but also a bit of playfulness from Olsen. She shakes her silver do around whilst roller skating down the street in the night hours, and alone, plus or minus some equally as silly young people, at a roller rink. The youthfullness is infectious as is her demanding voice.
