Angel Olsen has shared a video of her covering George Harrison’s “Beware Of Darkness.”
Olsen’s performance sees her adding a sparse, intimate twist to the All Things Must Pass track. Olsen strums softly on a guitar as she delivers lines like, “In the dead of night/ Beware of sadness/ It can hit you/ It can hurt you.”
“The original is pretty great,” Olsen says in the clip. “I’m just messing around like a tired sad shit.”

The original is pretty great. I’m just messing around like a tired sad shit Words are good too: “Watch out now, take care Beware of falling swingers Dropping all around you The pain that often mingles In your fingertips Beware of darkness Watch out now, take care Beware of the thoughts that linger Winding up inside your head The hopelessness around you In the dead of night Beware of sadness It can hit you It can hurt you Make you sore and what is more That is not what you are here for Watch out now, take care Beware of soft shoe shufflers Dancing down the sidewalks As each unconscious sufferer Wanders aimlessly Beware of Maya Watch out now, take care Beware of greedy leaders They take you where you should not go While Weeping Atlas Cedars They just want to grow, grow and grow Beware of darkness”
