Earlier this month, Angel Olsen shared Hi-Five from her forthcoming album, Burn Your Fire For No Witness, which took the form of a relatively upbeat, almost bluesy break-up story. And now for something completely different: her newest single, White Fire, is slow, breathy and totally tragic, steering listeners down a cold, painful and heartbreaking road. The track begins with the sorrowful lyrics, “Everything is tragic/It all just falls apart,” a statement that definitely sets the scene for the following seven minutes of palpable, heart-rending melancholy. If you feel like a Friday afternoon wallow, this song is for you. Listen below.
