Angel Olsen Sings for the Lonesome on ‘Hi-Five’
Take a look left and right. Now glance behind you. Anyone around? If not, don’t fret. Being lonely ain’t the worst thing in the world. Angel Olsen has been there, and on ‘Hi-Five,’ the second single from her forthcoming sophomore album, ‘Burn the Fire For No Witness,’ the singer-songwriter serves up a strummy fuzz-country anthem for all the lonesome folks out there.
‘Hi-Five’ follows lead single ‘Forgiven/Forgotten,’ another driving, dramatic tune that goes a long way toward explaining why tastemakers are so hot and bothered about Olsen’s new LP, which lands Feb. 18 via Jagjaguwar.
Olsen and her band kick off a U.S. tour the day the record drops, so click here for a list of dates, and don’t worry about showing up for one of her gigs solo. It’s gonna be OK.
