Angel Olsen shares new song “Sans”

Angel Olsen has released “Sans,” a new song off of her upcoming rarities collection Phases. She recently performed the song live on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic.” Hear the studio version and watch her performance below. Find a note written Olsen about the song below as well. Phases is set to be out November 10th via Jagjaguwar.

“Sans” was a song I wrote in between Burn Your Fire and My Woman, something short and simple – but about a big thing in my life: travel and what it can do to the psyche. When you’re out there and you’re working and moving so fast it’s difficult to really imagine a time when you were fully realized and known. You know, it’s hard enough to be known when you’re around! But then there are those people in your life that know you and don’t need you around all the time to be or feel close-I suppose it’s about that too.
