Angel Olsen has returned with a video for her new single, “All The Good Times.” The track comes alongside the announcement of her new album, Big Time, out June 3rd via Jagjaguwar.
“All The Good Times” sees Olsen leaning into a country twang, with plucked guitar lines and driven percussion. Throughout the track, Olsen offers up some droning country vocals, delivering lines like, “I’ll be long gone/ Thanks for the songs/ Guess it’s time to wake up from this trip we’ve been on.” Directed by Kimberly Stuckwisch, the accompanying video stars Olsen alongside her partner.
“Angel’s story is a gift,” Stuckwisch explains. “It allowed me to visually explore the universal themes of love, loss, and most importantly what holds us back from realizing our true selves.

Mixed with co-producer Jonathan Wilson, the forthcoming record was written as Olsen was coming out as queer.
“Some experiences just make you feel as though you’re 5 years old, no matter how wise or adult you think you are,” Olsen explains of coming out to her parents. “Finally, at the ripe age of 34, I was free to be me.”
Her father passed away just a few days later, and Olsen ended up introducing her partner to her family for the first time at his funeral. Just two weeks later, her mother ended up in the ER and soon passed away. A few weeks after the second funeral, Olsen headed to the studio to make Big Time.
