It’s been a few months since Angel Olsen released her ace album ‘MY WOMAN’, and she’s recently been on tour in Europe.
She stopped off in Bologna in Italy for a show, and was happy to take a rather peculiar fan request. Rather than ask for an album track or even one of her singles, they plumped for ‘Special’, a tune that Angel’s never released and only ever played live. Happy to oblige, she dived straight into the nine-minute, gorgeously expansive tune and the whole thing was captured on camera.
The same fan who requested the track also took to Reddit to relay what Angel had said after the show itself. Apparently, ‘Special’ will be coming out sometime in Autumn. It’s not entirely clear whether it’s just as a stand-alone single or as part of a larger collection of tracks, but it’s exciting nonetheless.
