Angel Olsen – “Stars”

Tom Breihan | December 16, 2013 - 8:52 am

On her last album, 2012’s Half Way Home, Angel Olsen was a skeletal folk singer/songwriter. She hasn’t become another person or anything, but now we’ve heard two songs from the forthcoming follow-up Burn Your Fire For No Witness, and both are significantly rocked-up. We’ve already posted first single “Forgiven/Forgotten,” and now the Belgian radio show Signaal/Ruis has played her new song “Stars,” an impressively clangy and heartfelt indie rock song. Listen to it below; it starts around the 5:45 mark of the broadcast. (Or you could just let the broadcast play and give yourself another chance to hear EMA’s great “Satellites” beforehand.)

UPDATE: The stream has been taken down. We’ll letcha know when it reappears.

Burn Your Fire For No Witness is out 2/18 on Jagjaguwar.
