Angel Olsen has covered Bobby Vinton’s 1962 classic “Mr. Lonely” for Miranda July’s upcoming film KAJILLIONAIRE, which arrives on September 25th.
The track was written along with the film’s composer Emile Mosseri, and comes as a stark, slowly building tune that let’s Olsen’s powerhouse vocals take the lead.
“[Miranda July] was working on songs with Emile for the upcoming film KAJILLIONAIRE, which at the time I knew nothing about,” Olsen explains. “I just happened to be in Los Angeles. So I met with them both, and we talked about cadence and we talked about life and we talked about the film. And Miranda directed me to sing the cover in the way she and Emile thought it would represent the feelings behind the film. It was a lovely experience.”
