Angel Olsen unveiled the title track and new video from her new album, Big Time, out June 3rd on Jagjaguwar.
“Big Time” is a fearless country song bolstered by winding pedal steel and her magnetic voice. The song’s cinematic video was directed once again by Kimberly Stuckwisch with choreography by Monika Felice Smith.
“Big Time” by Angel Olsen:
Angel Olsen is an American singer-songwriter and musician from St. Louis, Missouri now currently based in Asheville, North Carolina.
Big Time is Olsen’s sixth studio album. Recorded and mixed with co-producer Jonathan Wilson, it also features pianist and organist Drew Erickson and bassist Emily Elhaj.
The new album is the follow-up to Olsen’s 2021 covers EP Aisles and the 2020 album Whole New Mess—a counterpart to 2019’s All Mirrors.
According to the album’s announcement, Big Time was written during a period of time when Olsen was coming out as queer.
“Some experiences just make you feel as though you’re 5 years old, no matter how wise or adult you think you are,” Olsen said in a statement about coming out to her parents around that time. “Finally, at the ripe age of 34, I was free to be me.”
Olsen will soon tour with Sharon Van Etten and Julien Baker.
