Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen have joined forces for a new song. “Like I Used To” was produced by John Congleton, who worked with Van Etten on Remind Me Tomorrow and Olsen on Burn Your Fire for No Witness and All Mirrors. The collaborative song arrives with a Kimberly Stuckwisch–directed music video shot in Joshua Tree.
“Even though we weren’t super close, I always felt supported by Angel and considered her a peer in this weird world of touring,” Sharon says. “We highway high-fived many times along the way… I finally got the courage in June of 2020 to reach out to see if she would want to sing together. I got greedy and quickly sent her a track I had been working on.”
“I’ve met with Sharon here and there throughout the years and have always felt too shy to ask her what she’s been up to or working on,” Angel says. “The song reminded me immediately of getting back to where I started, before music was expected of me, or much was expected of me, a time that remains pure and real in my heart.”
