Angel Olsen shares “Lark” off new album

Angel Olsen has shared a second single off her upcoming album All Mirrors (due 10/4 via Jagjaguwar), “Lark.” Like the lead single/title track, “Lark” finds Angel exploring a more atmospheric side of her, and though it’s more of a slow-burner than the immediately satisfying My Woman singles, it builds to something that’s just as grand in its own way, thanks in part to a sweeping 11-piece string section conducted by Jherek Bischoff. It comes with a video directed by Ashley Connors, who also directed the “All Mirrors” video. Angel says:

“Lark” is a song that took many years to finish. 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,” says Olsen. “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?

Watch/listen below.

Angel also has an upcoming tour that includes a show at NJ’s Asbury Lanes on 10/30 with Vagabon, and NYC shows at Brooklyn Steel on 11/21 with Zsela, 11/22 with Vagabon, and 11/23 with Madi Diaz. Tickets for the 11/21 show go on sale Friday (9/13) at 10 AM and the other three shows are on sale now (same link).
