Watch Angel Olsen Cover Roxy Music’s “More Than This”
Angel Olsen is getting into the stuck-at-home quarantine fun (?) by covering a song today. She did Roxy Music’s “More Than This,” the big hit off their 1982 album Avalon. The band, sans Brian Eno, reunited last year when they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
Olsen released her most recent album, All Mirrors, last year. She was supposed to head out on some tour dates in a couple weeks through the South, but those have been postponed until the pandemic is over.
Check out her cover below.
UPDATE: Olsen has also posted a video of herself covering “Il Cielo In Una Stanza,” an Italian song written by Gino Paoli and originally recorded by the singer Mina in 1960. Olsen sings in Italian and everything. Here’s her video:

Il cielo in una stanza The sky in a room When you're here with me Quando sei qui con me This room has no more walls Questa stanza non ha più pareti But trees Ma alberi Infinite trees Alberi infiniti When you're here near me Quando tu sei qui vicino a me This purple ceiling Questo soffitto viola No, it no longer exists No, non esiste più I see the sky above us Io vedo il cielo sopra noi That we stay here Che restiamo qui Abandoned Abbandonati As if it were gone Come se non ci fosse più Nothing, nothing in the world anymore Niente, più niente al mondo He plays a harmonica Suona un'armonica It looks like an organ Mi sembra un organo That vibrates for you and me Che vibra per te e per me Up in the immensity of the sky Su nell'immensità del cielo He plays a harmonica Suona un'armonica It looks like an organ Mi sembra un organo That vibrates for you and me Che vibra per te e per me Grazie Mille, viva brocioli
