Angel Olsen – Lark | Music Video


Angel Olsen has dropped the opening track from her new album All Mirrors coming out next month. “Lark” is accompanied by a cinematic music video directed by Ashley Connor.


Earlier this year, the American singer-songwriter announced the follow-up to 2016’s My Woman and shared the title track, “All Mirrors”. Today, the second single from Olsen’s fourth LP has landed with a stunning music video to accompany. The clip helmed by Ashley Connor, the artist’s frequent collaborator, was shot in Asheville, North Carolina.


The director said in a press release: “’Lark’ is the cathartic release we all ask for but so rarely get, an anthem to scream on the tops of hills or in the back of a truck or just in the privacy of our own home. We cried on beaches, we broke bones, got wet, rolled in the grass, danced around a fire with friends and gave each other a lot of hugs—an apt exploration of every broken heart we’ve ever had”.


“‘Lark’ is a song that took many years to finish”, the artist revealed in a statement. “The disjointed feelings and verses of this song began to make sense as a way for me to exercise a kind of journey through grieving, a kind of personal struggle”.


“The message of the song developed at first from an argument I once had with someone about trust and support”, she added. “Later, I pulled from recurring themes in my life as a musician and as a human that dreams for a living. It’s easy to promise the world to those we love, but what about when our dreams change and values split?”.


All Mirrors is due for release on October 4 via Jagjaguwar Records. Olsen recorded two versions of the album. The one arriving next month was produced by John Congleton and features a 14-piece orchestra. The singer will also embark on a North American tour later this year in support of her new record.
