Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen took to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night (June 9th) to perform their recently released collaborative single, “Like I Used To.”
The captivating performance saw the pair playing off of each other’s powerful vocals, backed by Rhys Hastings and Griffin Goldsmith on drums, Nicole Lawrence on guitar, Emily Elhaj on bass, and Charley Damski on keys.
With hazy lights and a sparse stage set up, this performance is all about the music, as Olsen and Van Etten deliver lines like, “Lighting one up like I used to/ Dancing all alone like I used to/ Giving it up like I used to/ Falling in love like I used to.”

“Even though we weren’t super close, I always felt supported by Angel and considered her a peer in this weird world of touring,” Van Etten explains. “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.”
