Burn Your Fire for No Witness is the second studio album by American folk singer-songwriter Angel Olsen, released in February 2014 via Jagjaguwar Records.

Angel Olsen is an American folk and indie rock singer and guitarist who has recorded and toured as a backing singer with Bonnie "Prince" Billy and the Cairo Gang, before embarking on her own career. Angel Olsen began singing as a young girl in St. Louis. Her self-released debut EP, Strange Cacti, belied both that early period of discovery and her Midwestern roots. Olsen then went further on Half Way Home, her first full-length album, which mined essential themes while showcasing a more developed voice. Olsen dared to be more personal. 

On her second LP, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, Angel Olsen sings with full-throated exultation, admonition, and bold, expressive melody. With the help of producer John Congleton, her music now crackles with a churning, rumbling low end and a brighter energy. 

After extensive touring, Olsen eventually settled for a time in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood, where she created "a collection of songs grown in a year of heartbreak, travel, and transformation," that would become Burn Your Fire For No Witness. Many of them remain essentially unchanged from their bare beginnings. In leaving them so intact, a more self-assured Olsen allows you to be in the room with her at the very genesis of these songs. The reward for entering this room is many a head-turning moment and the powerful, unsettling recognition of ourselves in the weave of her songs.

Burn Your Fire for No Witness garnered broadly positive reviews from critics. Turntable Kitchen called it "spellbinding and beautifully composed," while further describing it as "an album spilling over with heart-swelling and painfully visceral romance." The A.V. Club named it the best album of 2014. The Village Voice's Pazz & Jop annual critics' poll named Burn Your Fire for No Witness the eighth-best album of 2014.

Forgiven/Forgotten, Hi-Five and Windows were released as singles.
