‘Big Time’ is Angel Olsen’s sixth studio album, an extraordinary collection of songs that draw upon country, folk and Americana traditions.
It was recorded last year in the wake of profound grief, and during a time of transformation for Olsen. In the months leading to the recording of ‘Big Time’, Olsen came out as queer with a new partner. She told her parents, who by chance both tragically passed away from separate illnesses within weeks.
Olsen has said the new album is the work of a person “irreversibly changed”. The music and lyrics of Big Time are charged with weighty emotions; it's filled with moments of heartbreak, catharsis, and consolation.
