Angel Olsen has shared a new cover of ‘Mr. Lonely’ originally by Bobby Vinton for the soundtrack of Kajillionaire which is set to be released on September 25th in Theatres alongside the soundtrack.

In a post on Instagram Olsen said about the cover “Suddenly there she was. THE MIRANDA JULY. In my text messages. She was working on songs with Emile Mosseri for her upcoming film Kajillionaire, which at the time I knew nothing about. I just so happened to be in Los Angeles. So I met with them both, and we talked about cadence and we talked about life and we talked about the film. And Miranda directed me to sing “Mr. Lonely”, a cover of the 1962 Bobby Vinton single, in the way she and Emile thought it would best represent the feelings behind the film.
It was a lovely experience.
Later, Miranda and I went outside for a little break and we did a little improv with each other. Just us.”
