    Angel Olsen has shared details of her upcoming release Phases. The compilation will be out on November 10th, and will feature an assortment of demos, B-sides, and alternate versions of songs spanning her full discography.

    Phases will also contain tracks that have not yet been released. One of those previously unheard songs, "Special" was dropped with the announcement of the compilation. Olsen recorded "Special" while working on her 2016 album, My Woman. The song is a seven minute twenty-two second burner. It begins with guitar and Angel's swirling voice. She sings in her psychedelic tone of wanting to be "...special / Something like your mother." Angel weaves a tale of an all too human feeling, wanting to be someone else, wanting to feel special, as the song builds from a mellow lullaby to a full on psych-rock banger. "Special" gives off some serious "Lay In The Grass And Watch The Day Pass By" vibes.

    In addition to the announcement of this gaggle of rarities, Angel added a slew of new dates to her My Woman Tour, which you can check out here.
