Hot on the musical heels of last year’s debut Half Way Home, Angel Olsen has announced her sophomore album Burn Your Fire With No Witness is in the can and set for release on Jagjaguwar in February next year. But she hasn’t just left us hanging. The songstress has released a teaser for the album in the form of ‘Forgiven/Forgotten’, and it’s quite a departure from the singer/songwriter’s previous acoustic stylings.
The track shows off a more assured Olsen, unafraid to add some kick to her songwriting arsenal. ‘Forgiven/Forgotten’ is a riot of spectacularly crunchy guitars and thumping beats that hammer home Olsen’s dark and thought provoking lyricism. It’s surely an indication that Burn Your Fire With No Witness is going to be scorching (see what I did there?).
