Angel Olsen’s gorgeous sophomore release Burn Your Fire For No Witness was an album that truly solidified her intense skill as an artist, with her beautiful voice taking center stage in stunners like “White Fire” and “Lota.” It was also an album that could take some time to really sink in, but when it did, it was something absolutely and wonderfully irreversible, making it one of the year’s best releases. Today, Olsen released the first track off her upcoming album My Woman, her first since 2014. “Intern” is dark and ethereal, as Olsen seamlessly adds pain and passion to her soft, soothing vocals. It gradually builds in intensity, but is then cut short by a tv transmission error, giving the track an eerie yet tantalizingly mysterious feeling.
