Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen have released an acoustic take of their recent collaborative track "Like I Used To", which was debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (9 August).

"Like I Used To", released in May, marked Van Etten and Olsen's first collaboration, and featured production from John Congleton.

Yesterday (9 August), they performed an acoustic version of the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and have released the acoustic studio recording today (10 August)

Van Etten said of the collaboration in May, "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 added, "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."

Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen's "Like I Used To" single is out now on Jagjaguwar.
