Angel Olsen Posts Epic New Song Time Bandits

Monday, 12 October 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Angel Olsen has shared a home recording of a new song.

Time Bandits is a slow, mournful, 11-minute piano-based composition that reflects on living in the here and now. Uploading it to Instagram on October 11, the singer-songwriter revealed she penned the song just a few weeks ago but made no reference to the 1981 Terry Gilliam film of the same name. She said:

"I wrote this after I came home from St. Louis a few weeks ago... against better judgement I’ve decided to put new songs up, it’s a business but it’s my business."

It follows the August release of Olsen's fifth studio album, 'A Whole New Mess', as well as recent covers of tracks by Billie Holiday, George Harrison and Bobby Vinton.

Her postponed summer date at Newcastle's Tyne Theatre and Opera House has been rescheduled to March 7, 2021. Tickets for the original date remain valid.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I wrote this after I came home from St. Louis a few weeks ago...against better judgement I’ve decided to put new songs up, it’s a business but it’s my business. The feeling takes over at first it’s surprising But then I surrender no longer in hiding I’m having a hard time not falling in love with The heart of a moment the heart of a moment Be here if you’re bein’ the people are seeing Listen if you’re hearing The truth needs no saying It’s in us its with us if you know it, it’s framing The love that you’re holding the dreams that you carry The joke that you’re telling someone to be merry And laugh at it all when you’ve just had enough And dance when you’re crying, get that spirit up I want you I want you I need you right now To be here and lay down and get on the ground And hear it and feel it and know that you’re bound to the earth to each other, and that’s where it’s found The love that we wanted the future we need We can’t do it alone, we have to believe In each other in each other be as thick as thieves But thieves like time bandits with hearts on our sleeves Who fly up from the past and present what is key To surviving the future and reversing the spell That we put on our people that dragged us all into hell I want you I want you I need you right now I want you I want you I need you right now To be here and lay down and get on the ground And hear it and feel it and know that you’re bound to the earth to each other, and that’s where it’s found I want you I need you I need you right now
