Before she took to a studio to complete All Mirrors in 2018, Angel Olsen recorded early versions of its songs at a church-turned-studio in Washington. Songs like “New Love Cassette,” “Lark Song,” and “Chance (Forever Love)” rub shoulders with two new tracks, “Whole New Mess” and “Waving, Smiling.” In a statement about the record, Olsen said she wanted the recordings to capture the raw feelings of the songs’ vulnerability. “The songs are completely different, in my opinion. They all have different feelings because the music behind them is really different,” she told Pitchfork.
