On November 10, Angel Olsen will release an album of B-sides, demos, and rarities titled Phases. Today, she shared a self-directed music video for the mellow tune "Special," which will be included in the upcoming collection. Watch it above, courtesy of her YouTube channel.
In a post on Facebook, Angel shared the inspiration behind the film:
My friend came to visit me for a week and I had all these grand ideas about how to make another video. But it's been a long year of touring and videos and pressure to keep on being important or interesting. So I woke up the next day and changed my mind, deciding it would be best to just capture the days we were hanging and to occasionally have the camera up. Those days were some of the hardest and also sweetest of the summer. We spent much of the time talking about the current state of affairs and how everyone has been going through tremendous change and having to make hard choices. Maybe it's just this year, but it feels that we're entering a new era, one that requires us to really pay more attention to the world and ourselves in it.
