So far Angel Olson has released three spectacular albums, 2012’s “Half Way Home”, 2014’s “Burn Your Fire For No Witness” and 2016’s “My Woman” and next month she is set to release “All Mirrors” which could be her most intense and compelling record to date.
Today she gives us a breathtakingly beautiful video for the albums opening song “Lark” which features a distraught Olson leaving a house only to jump into someone’s pickup truck and venture into a series of epic landscape settings while giving an undeniably cathartic performance pouring her heart out with her trademark vocal delivery. The 14 piece orchestra that accompanies Olson is nothing short of stellar as the string arrangements create a hypnotic wave of atmospheric bliss.
Reflecting on the track Olson said…“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. 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?”
