Angel Olsen Shares New Orchestral Version of “Alive and Dying (Waving, Smiling)”
- American singer-songwriter Angel Olsen shared a new orchestral version of “Alive and Dying (Waving, Smiling)” from her upcoming box set “Song of the Lark and Other Far Memories”.
The original version of the song is included on her fifth studio album “Whole New Mess”, which was released last August.
She re-recorded the song with an 11-piece orchestra. “This song is all about chapters closing, and learning to let go of things I can't understand,” Angel Olsen shared on social media. “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.”
The album “Song of the Lark and Other Far Memories” is set to be released on May 7th and contains 6-bonus track including outtakes, lyric sheets and a 40-page booklet.
