Angel Olsen Shares Video For “Through The Fires”

Jagjaguwar recording artist Angel Olsen releases her new LP, Big Time, on June 3rd. Ahead of its release, she is sharing a video for album “Through The Fires.” Big Time was forged in a whiplash; the rare, fertile moments when both fresh grief and fresh love occur, when mourning and limerence heighten, complicate and explain each other.

Big Time was recorded and mixed with co-producer Jonathan Wilson at his Fivestar Studios in Topanga, California. Drew Erickson played piano, organ, and handled string arrangements, and Olsen’s longtime bandmate, Emily Elhaj, played bass throughout.Every CD and LP copy of Big Time ordered directly from the label store will include an additional charge to offset the carbon emissions of each piece. Jagjaguwar, in partnership with Terra Lumina Consulting, calculated emissions and costs to achieve a carbon negative product for “cradle-to-grave” use of each physical piece: from the mining of materials, to pressing and shipping, to the electricity consumed by your stereo at home, to end of life disposal. Carbon offsets will be purchased through Native, supporting the Medford Spring Grassland project.

“‘Through The Fires’ is the centerpiece statement of this record. It’s a song I wrote to remind myself that this life is temporary, the past is not something to dwell on, that it’s important to keep moving, keep searching for the people that are also searching, and to notice the moments that are lighter and bigger than whatever trouble I’ve encountered.”
– Angel Olsen on “Through The Fires”

“Through The Fires” Lyrics:

I lost sight, then I made up my mind
To learn to release the dreams that had died
In spite of the sound of what I had heard
To recognize truth without any word
I felt the change and it
came back around
Then I moved in to the feeling I found
And the feeling I found
Showed me how I could lose
to love without boundary
and put it to use
To remember the ghost
Who exists in the past
But be freed from the longing
For one moment to last
And walk through the fires
Of all earthly desires
And let go of the pain that obstructs you from higher higher higher
Higher higher higher higher higher lighter lighter lighter

Recently, Olsen and director Kimberly Stuckwisch announced a new film, also titled Big Time, presented by Amazon Music. The 28-minute film premieres June 2nd at 6:30pm PDT/9:30pm EDT on the Amazon Music channel on Twitch and via the Amazon Music App. The Big Time Twitch Watch Party will also feature a Q+A with both Olsen and Kimberly, followed by a concert airing from the premiere party at Brain Dead Studios in Los Angeles.
