Angel Olsen has brought her All Mirrors and Whole New Mess albums together.

Angel Olsen has shared Alive And Dying (Waving, Smiling) from the bonus LP which will be a part of her Song Of The Lark And Other Far Memories box-set which is due for release on May 7th.

That additional record is to present alternate takes, b-sides, remixes and reimaginings from the prolific period which delivered All Mirrors and Whole New Mess between 2019-20, this one in question an orchestral version of Waving, Smiling from the latter.

“This song is all about chapters closing, and learning to let go of things I can’t understand,” Olsen explains.

“It’s very me – I will always nosedive into love, and suffering can definitely come with that. When I hear this version the strings really bring the song to its necessary bittersweet boiling point.”
