Angel Olsen will release Phases, a collection of B-sides, rarities, and demos from the past several years, including a number of never-before released tracks, on November 10th via Jagjaguwar. Balancing tenacity and tenderness, Phases acts as a deep-dive for longtime fans, as well as a fitting introduction to Olsen’s sprawling sonics for the uninitiated.

From the lo-fi, sparse folk-melancholy of her 2010 EP, “Strange Cacti,” to the electrified, polished rock ‘n’ roll bursting from last year’s beloved and acclaimed MY WOMAN, which won The A2IM Libera Awards’ Album of the Year, Olsen has refused to succumb to a single genre, expectation, or vision. Impossible to pin down, she navigates the world with her remarkable, symphonic voice and a propensity for narrative, her music growing into whatever shape best fits to tell the story.

Phases opens with “Fly On Your Wall,” previously contributed to the Bandcamp-only Our First 100 Days fundraiser, before seamlessly slipping into “Special,” a brand new song from the MY WOMAN recording sessions. Both “How Many Disasters” and “Sans” are first-time listens: home-recorded demos that have never been released, leaning heavily on Olsen’s arresting croon and lonesome guitar. The B-sides compilation is both a testament to Olsen’s enormous musical range and a tidy compilation of tracks that have previously been elusive in one way or another.

Olsen continues to tour extensively in support of MY WOMAN and Phases. She’ll close out the year playing her biggest rooms yet. Additionally, she makes her debut on Austin City Limits’ Season 43 this fall.

1. Fly On Your Wall
2. Special
3. Only You
4. All Right Now
5. Sans
6. Sweet Dreams
7. California
8. Tougher Than the Rest
