Angel Olsen introduces new album Big Time and Short Film: Stream

Angel Olsen has a new album called Big time. The full project will be released on June 3 via Jagjaguwar. To update: The album can be streamed in its entirety. In addition, Olsen shared an accompanying short film that she co-directed with Kimberly Stuckwisch. Stream the album and watch the movie below.

The harrowing history of the origins of Big time certainly justifies the name of the album. The LP was written around the time Olsen came out as queer to her parents, something she had long avoided. “Some experiences just make you feel like you’re five years old, no matter how wise or mature you think you are,” Olsen said. And while the news was ultimately well received — “At the ripe old age of 34, I was finally free to be myself,” recalls the artist — Olsen’s relief was quickly marred by unspeakable pain. Three days after coming out, Olsen’s father died; Her mother died just a few weeks later. Three weeks after her mother’s funeral, Olsen entered Fivestar Studios with producer Jonathan Wilson and recorded Big time.

Understandably, Big time deals heavily with love and heartbreak. For example, lead single “All the Good Times” follows Olsen through the rise and fall of her first queer relationship, not with dramatic synthesizers but pounding country organ. “I can’t say I’m sorry if I don’t feel so wrong anymore,” sings Olsen, at peace at last. Her voice boasts the kind of hard-won calm that only comes after a battle with the devil. In the song’s music video, which was directed by Kimberly Stuckwisch, time jumps between shots of Olsen and her partner happily in love and the artist taking to the streets solo and filling a pickup truck with gas straight from an old can.

Big time can be bought here. If the record seems a little pricey, it’s for a good cause: Jagjaguwar has teamed up with Terra Lumina Consulting to offset the carbon emissions of producing CDs and LPs. The company calculated the carbon emissions of the album’s cradle-to-grave use, including the quarrying of materials, pressing and shipping the product, power consumption of stereo systems playing the album, and end-of-life disposal . Carbon offsets are purchased through Native and support the Medford Spring Grassland Project.

This summer, Angel Olsen will be on the road with Sharon Van Etten and Julien Baker for The Wild Hearts Tour, out in stores now. After that, Olsen will headline on a European tour. Tickets for the dates below go on sale Friday through Ticketmaster.
