Angel Olsen Drops Video For New Single “Lark”

On Thursday, Angel Olsen shared a new single called “Lark,” and a corresponding music video. The release comes ahead of Olsen’s new album, All Mirrors, which comes out on October 4 via Jagjaguwar.

A little on the longer side for a single — clocking in at more than six minutes — “Lark” is a masterpiece tune that demonstrates Olsen’s tact, talent and ever developing sound. An emotional journey, the song skiffully builds tension to a passionate climax that places the listener at the summit of a metaphorical mountain … or, in the case of the music video, a literal mountain. All that to say, six minutes doesn’t feel long at all when it’s spent in the company of Olsen’s work.

“‘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?”

With passion, introspection, fury and hard-won self-acceptance married with string arrangements, synth swells and Olsen’s instantly recognizable tenor, All Mirrors is set to be a new step in Olsen’s career.
