The album features selections of the show’s original music composed by Claudia Sarne, with Olsen’s cover appearing as the third track on the record.
Based on the novel by Lauren Beukes, Shining Girls follows Kirby Mazrachi (Moss) as a Chicago newspaper archivist who is the survivor of a traumatic assault. When she learns of a recent murder that’s linked to her case, she teams up with journalist Dan Velazquez (Wagner Moura) to understand her blurred reality and uncover the killer’s identity.
In a four star review of the series, NME said: “Its mystery is a huge part of its charm, and you’ll be gripped till the very last minute, anxious to see how all the pieces of the jigsaw come together.”
In other news, Angel Olsen shared her new single ‘Through The Fires’ earlier this month.
