Angel Olsen returns with "My Woman," her new album in which she continues to reign over the land between pop personality and elliptical outsider with haunting obliqueness and sophisticated grace. Teased last week with the “Intern” Trailer, "My Woman," follows the release of "Burn Your Fire for No Witness," one of the most praised albums of 2014, and is out September 2 on Jagjaguwar. The Angel Olsen six-piece band will tour extensively in support of "My Woman" throughout North America and Europe beginning in September.

Given its title, and track names like “Sister” and “Woman,” it would be easy to read a gender-specific message into "My Woman," but Olsen has never played her lyrical content straight. She says the album isn’t necessarily a feminist manifesto, but it does sometimes deal with themes surrounding “the complicated mess of being a woman.” She continues, “I’m definitely using scenes that I’ve replayed in my head, in the same way that I might write a script and manipulate a memory to get it to fit. But I think it’s important that people can interpret things the way that they want to.”
