Angel Olsen shares cover of Lucinda Williams’ ‘Greenville’

Angel Olsen has shared a cover of Lucinda Williams’ “Greenville” as an Amazon Original.

The track, which is only available on Amazon Music, stays pretty true to the original tune, as Olsen’s stunning vocals take the lead atop dreamy guitars. Engineered by Kyle Thomas (King Tuff), Olsen’s rendition of “Greenville” features backing vocals from Hand Habits’ Meg Duffy.

“Before I wrote Big Time I found a new obsession and love for Lucinda’s body of work,” Olsen explains. “There is no one like her out there. It’s clear to me that her songs come from a very real place, and that’s the only kind of writing I like.”

Listen to Angel Olsen’s cover of “Greenville” below.

“I recorded my version of ‘Greenville’ in Los Angeles earlier this month with Kyle Thomas of King Tuff,” Olsen adds. “We’ve known each other for a while, but never recorded music together. Kyle made this so fun to record and we had a great time goofing around. Meg Duffy also sang with me on this track. Meg showed me this song for the first time years ago and was the first one to introduce me to Lucinda’s music. It was very meaningful to have them on the track with me.”

Olsen’s cover comes as part of Amazon Music’s celebration of Pride Month. The company is releasing content that spotlights artists who are breaking boundaries. Directed by Kimberly Stuckwisch, Olsen’s new film, Big Time is also presented by Amazon Music for Pride Month.
