SUFJAN SATURDAY! – SUFJAN STEVENS “CARRIE & LOWELL” LISTENING PARTY – SATURDAY, 3/21 @ NOON – 3:00PM
“In the nearly five years since Sufjan Stevens released The Age of Adz, he’s worked with the ballet, scored a rodeo documentary, released more Christmas music, and released an album and EP with his side project Sisyphus. This year, he’s releasing a new full-length. Carrie & Lowell is out March 30 in Europe and March 31 in North America via Asthmatic Kitty. Watch the album’s trailer below.
According to a press release, the album was named for Stevens’ mother and stepfather, and its 11 songs are about “life and death, love and loss, and the artist’s struggle to make sense of the beauty and ugliness of love.” It’s also billed as a return to Stevens’ “folk roots,” according to the press release.” Pitchfork
