Last night Angel Olsen kicked off her latest tour at the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville, VA. During the set she covered the David Bowie classic "Five Years," the opening track to 1972's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Watch fan shot video of part of her cover below.

In 2016 Olsen released a fantastic new album, MY WOMAN, via Jagjaguwar. It made it to #3 on Under the Radar's Top 100 Albums of 2016 list. While she hasn't announced its follow-up album yet, earlier this month (via Jagjaguwar) released Phases, a new collection of B-sides, rarities, and demos, including some previously unreleased tracks. It was our Album of the Week.
