Can you remember a time before albums had trailers? Seems a long time ago now. Yes, information on Sufjan’s new album has just broken, with the album itself being released on March 27th. If you’re so inclined, you can pre-order the album here. There is a small taster sized treat below.
SUFJAN STEVENS – Carrie & Lowell – 27 March 2015 – Asthmatic Kitty Records
Carrie & Lowell, the new album from Sufjan Stevens, is set for release March 27 in Ireland, March 30 in the UK / Europe and March 31 in North America on Stevens’ own Asthmatic Kitty Records.
The album – named for Stevens’ mother and stepfather – is a return to Stevens’ folk roots. Thematically the 11 songs address life and death, love and loss, and the artist’s struggle to make sense of the beauty and ugliness of love.
Carrie & Lowell was recorded by Stevens alongside Casey Foubert, Laura Veirs, Nedelle Torrisi, Sean Carey, Ben Lester and Thomas Bartlett and mixed by Stevens, Bartlett and Pat Dillet.
