Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen meet in a new song

Listen to "Like I Used To"

This may seem like a dream to many fans of the two singers. Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen have rivaled each other for the past 10 years on the independent music scene by releasing critically acclaimed albums. Now the two are in a duet debuting a new song called “Like I Used To”.

The two singers commented on the collaborative song. Sharon Van Etten wrote.

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

Olsen wrote about the invitation:

I’ve met with Sharon here and there throughout the years and have always felt too shy to ask her what she’s been up to or working on. The song reminded me immediately of getting back to where I started, before music was expected of me, or much was expected of me, a time that remains pure and real in my heart.

“Like I Used To” is presented in a video that merges images of the two singers.
