Angel Olsen has shared a new Mark Ronson remix of “New Love Cassette.” The track, off last year’s All Mirrors. Ronson’s remix turns “New Love Cassette” into a dark, glitchy ode to romance. As Olsen’s vocals declare a dedicated love, “I’m gonna help you see when you’re hard to find // Gonna gather strength, give you all my mind // Wanna show you my love all the time // Wanna hold you close and let you lie,” the instrumentation lightens, with a resonating beat and floating synth.
“The entire process of making All Mirrors has been about letting these songs become something bigger than what I can hear alone,” says Angel. “Though I know I’ll always be a songwriter at heart, and I’ll always keep a little bit for myself, I still love to experiment with material and to see what others hear when it comes to sonic backgrounds. A song can go in so many directions if you let it, I love hearing what Ronson hears in this remix of ‘New Love Cassette.’”
Ronson adds: “It’s hard to remix a song you already love this much, but I dusted off my MPC 3000 and we had a grand old time.”
In conjunction, Angel has announced a summer streaming series called Cosmic Streams, shot by her longtime collaborator and video director Ashley Connor.
