Announcing Song of the Lark and Other Far Memories. Out May 7. Pre-order It Now 

Originally conceived as a double album, All Mirrors and Whole New Mess were distinct parts of a larger whole, twin stars that each expressed something bigger and bolder than Angel Olsen had ever made. Released in 2019, All Mirrors is massive in scope and sound, tracing Olsen’s ascent into the unknown, to a place of true self-acceptance, no matter how dark, or difficult, or seemingly lonely. All Mirrors is colossal, moving, dramatic in an Old Hollywood manner. Recorded before All Mirrors but released after, Whole New Mess is the bones and beginnings of the songs that would rewrite Olsen’s story. This is Angel Olsen in her classic style: stark solo performances, echoes and open spaces, her voice both whispered and enormous.  All Mirrors and Whole New Mess presented the two glorious extremes of an artist who, in these songs, became new by embracing herself entirely.

Now, with Song of the Lark and Other Far Memories, these twin stars become a constellation with the full extent of the songs’ iterations: all the alternate takes, b-sides, remixes and reimaginings are here, together. Alongside, a 40-page book collection tells a similar story, not just through outtakes and unseen photos but through the smaller, evocative details: handwritten lyrics, a favorite necklace, a beaded chandelier. As if it could be more plainly stated (there’s nothing more), Angel adds one cover here: a loving, assertive rendition of Roxy Music’s “More Than This.”  

In first speaking about these songs, Olsen said, “It feels like part of my writing has come back from the past, and another part of it was waiting to exist.” What better way to articulate timelessness.  If Whole New Mess holds the truths of Olsen’s enduring self, and All Mirrors documents her ascent toward a new future, Song of the Lark and Other Far Memories exists out of time, capturing the whole artist beyond this one sound, or that one recording, or any one idea.  It is a definitive collection, not just of these songs but of their revelations and their writer, from their simplest origins to their mightiest realizations.

New Album Whole New Mess Out Aug 28

Angel Olsen will release Whole New Mess, her first solo album since her 2012 debut, on August 28th via Jagjaguwar. You can pre order it HERE. A super intimate and vulnerable emotional portrait that shows her grappling with a period of personal tumult, Whole New Mess presents Olsen working through her open wounds and raw nerves with just a few guitars and some microphones, isolated in a century-old church in the Pacific Northwest. In conjunction with today’s announcement, Olsen presents the lead single, “Whole New Mess,” with a video directed by longtime collaborator Ashley Connor and a performance this evening on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Additionally, she announces Cosmic Stream 3, the third in her livestream series, which will air on the album’s release date and stream from the Hazel Robinson Amphitheater in Asheville, NC.

Whole New Mess follows All Mirrors. At least nine of the eleven songs on Whole New Mess should sound familiar to any of you who have heard All Mirrors. “Lark,” “Summer,” “Chance”—they are all here, at least in some skeletal form and with slightly different titles. But these are not the demos for All Mirrors. Instead, Whole New Mess is its own record with its own immovable mood. If the lavish orchestral arrangements and cinematic scope of All Mirrors are the sound of Olsen preparing her scars for the wider world to see, Whole New Mess is the sound of her first figuring out their shape, making sense for herself of these injuries.

The Whole New Mess bundle includes the LP on limited edition translucent pink glass vinyl, the exclusive Smaller 7″ which includes “Smaller” b/w “More Than This” o black vinyl, an instant download of “Whole New Mess” and a ticket to Cosmic Stream 3 – the record release show.

All Mirrors is out worldwide on October 4 on Jagjaguwar. Pre Orders from the Secretly Store come on exclusive opaque aquamarine vinyl. The Jagjaguawar limited and exclusive bundle includes the aquamarine vinyl and the All Mirrors 7″ on silver and black splatter vinyl. The 7″ includes two versions of the album’s title track: “All Mirrors” album version and “We Are All Mirrors” solo version.
