Stream Angel Olsen’s New Album Via NPR Music & CBC


“Angel Olsen has made an unforgettable and entrancing record. Burn Your Fire for No Witness is the musical equivalent of a deep, questioning stare from a lover, and what draws me to her voice is its peaceful, subtle touch. It has me leaning in to listen.” – Bob Boilen,NPR Music

Leading up to the release of Burn Your Fire for No Witness (out Feb. 18 on Jagjaguwar),Angel Olsen shared the fantastic singles, “Forgiven/Forgotten” and “Hi-Five,” and teased intimate solo versions of previously unreleased tracks “Unf**ktheworld,” “Iota,” “Enemy,” and “White Fire,” for her NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert. Starting today, NPR Music andCBC are streaming Burn Your Fire for No Witness in full for a week leading up to the release date. This “collection of songs, grown in a year of heartbreak, travel, and transformation,” present a more self-assured Olsen. Here, she sings with full-throated exultation, admonition, and bold, expressive melody. Also, with the help of producer John Congleton, her music now crackles with a churning, rumbling low end and a brighter energy. Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, SPIN, The FADER, and many more are singing Olsen’s praises. As a musician known for delivering hypnotic performances and leaving audiences speechless, Olsen will take Burn Your Fire for No Witness on the road beginning next week through May. A full list of tour dates is below.

“Why She’ll Be Big: ‘Forgiven/Forgotten,’ the song you can hear now from Olsen’s second album, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, will singe anyone expecting the haunted-coffeehouse strumming she has become cultishly known for. But the rest of Burn blearily combines raw rock and harrowing folk, for a captivating listen that will be crucial to hear live . . . “

— Entertainment Weekly [14 Rising Stars to Watch In 2014]

“While the arrangements are more muscular than before, her high-arching voice remains unobstructed and completely devastating.”

— SPIN [50 Albums You Gotta Hear in 2014]

“On ‘Forgiven/Forgotten’ the explosive lead-off single from her second album, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, the instruments around her finally match the intensity of her voice.”

— Pitchfork [Best New Track]


“Her new album doesn’t come out till February, but it’s an early frontrunner for one of Bob Boilen’s favorites in 2014.”

— NPR Music‘s “All Songs Considered”

“Of all the musicians releasing new albums early this year, Angel Olsen is one who merits particular attention.”

— The Wall Street Journal

“here’s second taste ‘Hi-Five,’ an equally expansive track that chugs and howls, its pounded piano and thwacking kick drums still no match for Olsen’s ferocity as she blows up a partnership that leaves something to be desired.”
