Angel Olsen is the latest musician to perform on NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert series. Sitting on the willow-draped porch of her new home in Asheville, N.C., the singer-songwriter performed the title track from her latest album Whole New Mess, as well as ‘Iota’, ‘What It Is (What It Is)’, and ‘Waving, Smiling’. Check out her performance below.
“This song is just about wishing that all the world could see something for what it is at the same time,” she said of ‘Iota’, which appeared on her 2014 album Burn Your Fire for No Witness.
Angel Olsen recently shared a cover of Bobby Vinton’s 1962 classic ‘Mr. Lonely’, which appears on the soundtrack for Miranda July’s upcoming film Kajillionaire. Whole New Mess came out in August. Recently, Tiny Desk hosted Bright Eyes, Phoebe Bridgers, Billie Eilish, and more.
