“Unexpected.”

“Vulnerable.”

“Introspective.”

These are just three of the zillion or so words used to describe Angel Olsen’s newly announced forthcoming album All Mirrors by the person(s) earning six-times as much money as me writing these bullshit press releases.

Here’s a few dozen more, though, from Olsen herself:

In every way — from the making of it, to the words, to how I feel moving forward, this record is about owning up to your darkest side, finding the capacity for new love and trusting change even when you feel like a stranger.

All this cool-hand word jazz is, of course, meant to help differentiate All Mirrors from its wildly popular 2016 predecessor My Woman — and thank goodness, too. Because, frankly, it’s getting harder and harder to tell the difference between all these album covers’ close-up face shots and elaborate hairdos.

There are, of course, lots more words and phrases I could type-out for you about the “process” of making this album — “full production,” “new collaborators,” “more ambitious,” “powerful and surprising,” all that kind of stuff is in there — but fuck that; I know why you’re really here: You just wanna:

A) see the latest and greatest Angel Olsen hairstyle,

B) learn that the album is out October 4 on Jagjaguwar (and can be pre-ordered here),

C) catch the complete listing of WORLD TOUR dates that follows the release, so you can locate Olsen when she comes to your town,

and D) stream that video I promised you back in the headline for All Mirrors’ title track right down here:

Oops. How silly of me. I mean…right down HERE:
