Angel Olsen has shared a cover of Lucinda Williams’ “Greenville”

After the release of her new album, Big Time, Angel Olsen has shared a cover of Lucinda Williams’ “Greenville” as an Amazon Original. Olsen’s version, which stays fairly true to the original with her voice ringing out over her signature guitar tones, features backing vocals from Hand Habits’ Meg Duffy and was engineered by Kyle Thomas (King Tuff). Duffy and Olsen previously collaborated for a cover of Tom Petty’s “Walls.”

From Angel Olsen; “Before I wrote Big Time I found a new obsession and love for Lucinda’s body of work. There is no one like her out there. It’s clear to me that her songs come from a very real place, and that’s the only kind of writing I like.

“I recorded my version of ‘Greenville’ in Los Angeles earlier this month with Kyle Thomas of King Tuff. We’ve known each other for a while, but never recorded music together. Kyle made this so fun to record and we had a great time goofing around. Meg Duffy also sang with me on this track. Meg showed me this song for the first time years ago and was the first one to introduce me to Lucinda’s music. It was very meaningful to have them on the track with me.”

Music fans will be able to listen to PROUD, Amazon Music’s global playlist spotlighting new music from LGBTQ+ artists, as well as Orgullo, a playlist dedicated to Latin LGBTQ+ artists. In addition to Olsen’s cover of “Greenville,” PROUD has been the home to a series of brand-new Amazon Original tracks.
