Last years Big Time brought Angel Olsen to a deeper, truer senseof self than ever before. Borne from the twin stars of grief and love,the album delivered beautiful sense of certainty, the sure-footed soundof an artist fully, finally at home with herself. But within that wisdomcomes the realization that there is no finish line, no destination or staticend point to life while youre living it, and Forever Means collects songsfrom the Big Time sessions that hold this common theme. They are, inOlsens words, in search of something else.

I was somewhere traveling, says Olsen, stopped for a few days andwandering the city, and I was thinking what does forever really mean?What are the things Im seeking in friendship or love, and how canforever be attainable if were always changing? Sitting with the realityof that entropy, Olsen realized maybe the secret to ongoing love is toembrace change as part of love itself, that forever must have somethingto do with playing, looking, constantly searching things out for yourself,never letting yourself think youre finished learning or exploring.

Forever, says Olsen, remains curious while trying also to be kindand honest.

All this packs into the four precious songs that comprise ForeverMeans, songs from Olsens roads traveled and the ones ahead.Nothings free / like breaking free Olsen sings, comfortable with thecosts of her clarity, her heart and voice fixed on the present, the future,the not-yet-known and the beautifully unknowable.
