Angel Olsen song ‘New Love Cassette’ remixed by Mark Ronson
Angel Olsen has released a Mark Ronson remix of her song ‘New Love Cassette’.
The track, taken from lat year’s album All Mirrors, has become a fan favourite both live and on streaming platforms. Ronson’s remix of the song turns it into a dark, glitchy ode to romance. “I’m gonna help you see when you’re hard to find / Gonna gather strength, give you all my mind / Wanna show you my love all the time // Wanna hold you close and let you lie,” Olsen sings.
“The entire process of making All Mirrors has been about letting these songs become something bigger than what I can hear alone,” says Olsen. “Though I know I’ll always be a songwriter at heart, and I’ll always keep a little bit for myself, I still love to experiment with material and to see what others hear when it comes to sonic backgrounds.”
Discussing the remix, she added: “A song can go in so many directions if you let it, I love hearing what Ronson hears in this remix of ‘New Love Cassette.’”
Ronson adds: “It’s hard to remix a song you already love this much, but I dusted off my MPC 3000 and we had a grand old time.”

To coincide with the remix, Olsen has announced a summer streaming series called Cosmic Streams, shot by her longtime collaborator and video director Ashley Connor.
The first in the series, Cosmic Stream 1, airs from Asheville, NC’s Church at Echo Mountain Recording. It presents the singer performing her debut solo album, 2012’s Half Way Home, in its entirety.
To commemorate, Olsen and Bathetic Records are offering ticket buyers of this stream a limited edition version of Half Way Home featuring inverse artwork, white vinyl, and a postcard. A portion of the proceeds from this stream will go to supporting YWCA Asheville, an organisation dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
