So far this year, Angel Olsen and Sharon Van Etten’s team-up for the track ‘Like I Used To’ has been one of the stand-out songs. With ‘Born to Run’ energy and smooth meddling vocals, it has been on repeat for many summer playlists since it was released back in May.
Thus, it came as a very welcome sight to see the two phenoms perform a live acoustic version on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Perhaps even better news for fans is that they have also released a studio acoustic version to boot.
It has been a busy period for the duo with Angel Olsen set to release an EP of 1980s covers under the title Aisles on August 20th, and Sharon Van Etten helming her recent Epic Ten release that saw various artists cover her 2010 album Epic.
Recently, Angel Olsen has released Laura Branigan’s ‘Gloria’ and the quintessentially ‘80s ‘Safety Dance’ from the aforementioned EP to mixed reviews.
It is unclear whether or Olsen and Van Etten have any further collaborations up their sleeves at present, but there were more than a few hints in the Kimberley Stuckwisch-directed music video back in Joshua Tree to suggest a few more songs might be in the offing.
