Angel Olsen Unveils 'Song of the Lark and Other Far Memories' Box Set
It includes both 'All Mirrors' and 'Whole New Mess,' plus an LP of bonus material
Published Mar 30, 2021Angel Olsen is packaging up her works for a newly announced box set. Titled Song of the Lark and Other Far Memories, the set is due out May 7 via Jagjaguwar.
The collection finds Olsen putting together her albums All Mirrors (2019) and Whole New Mess (2020), in addition to a bonus LP called Far Memory and a 40-page book.
"Originally conceived as a double album, All Mirrors and Whole New Mess were distinct parts of a larger whole, twin stars that each expressed something bigger and bolder than Angel Olsen had ever made," a press release explains. "Now, with Song of the Lark and Other Far Memories, these twin stars become a constellation with the full extent of the songs' iterations: all the alternate takes, b-sides, remixes and reimaginings are here, together."
For an idea what to expect, you can hear the newly shared bonus track "It's Every Season (Whole New Mess)" over here.
Other tracks included on the Far Memory bonus LP include remixes by Johnny Jewel and Mark Ronson, as well as Olsen doing a cover of Roxy Music's classic "More Than This."
In a statement about the box set, Olsen said, "It feels like part of my writing has come back from the past, and another part of it was waiting to exist."
