Angel Olsen has announced a new covers EP. On September 24, she’ll release Aisles via Jagjaguwar. The set features covers of ’80s-era tracks, including songs by Billy Idol, Men Without Hats, OMD and Alphaville. The first song she’s shared from the new EP is her take on Laura Branigan’s “Gloria,” which you can hear below.
Olsen says in a press release, “I know it’s not really in my history to do something unintentional or just for the hell of it, but my connection to these songs is pretty straightforward, I just wanted to have a little fun and be a little more spontaneous, and I think I needed to remember that I could!”
Aisles follows Olsen’s 2020 album, Whole New Mess.
