DOWNLOAD: Sufjan Stevens - "Ding-a-ling-a-ring-a-ling" (MP3)


As mentioned, Sufjan Stevens is going on "The Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant On Ice" tour which hits NYC on December 21 and 22 at Bowery Ballroom, two very intimate shows for Sufjan, whose last shows in NYC were a two-night run at Prospect Park.

Tickets for both Bowery Ballroom shows go on sale today at noon.

Sufjan also just revealed another song off of his upcoming Christmas box set, Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas, Volumes 6-10 (due out 11/13 via Asthmatic Kitty). You can download that song, titled "Ding-a-ling-a-ring-a-ling," above, or stream it below.

In other holiday show news, Matisyahu is bringing his "Festival of Light" tour to the NYC area on December 15 at Terminal 5 with The Dub Trio and December 16 at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester. Tickets for the Terminal 5 show and the Capitol Theatre show go on sale today at noon. He also plays NJ's Starland Ballroom on November 3 (tix) as part of the fall tour he's on right now.

Would he actually play non-Christmas stuff? Cuz I kinda hate most Christmas music.

9:55, from Asthmatic Kitty: "All Grinches be forewarned: the show will consist entirely of Christmas music, inviting audience participation."

Ugh... not on sale until 12/19? That's extremely inconvenient.

2 ticket limit, will-call only.

Posted by Anonymous | October 12, 2012 10:33 AM

I'm also kinda curious on what happened with the tickets. Two days before the show is kinda difficult...

Posted by Anonymous | October 12, 2012 10:34 AM

Weird. I pulled 2 in the presale.

What the hell is going on with these Sufjan tickets?

Posted by Anonymous | October 12, 2012 12:35 PM

zzzz bowry website says tix on sale at 12 EST on 12/19 g00dj0k3

Posted by Anonymous | October 12, 2012 12:37 PM

So did anyone find tix? The site says they don't go on sale until two days before the show. How annoying.

Posted by Tommy Tenhet | October 12, 2012 1:08 PM

What is going on with the Sufjan tickets? How come they aren't on sale? This is really annoying.

Posted by Jaime | October 12, 2012 1:26 PM

I think the bigger question here is why on earth are you guys trying to buy tickets for this??

Posted by Anonymous | October 12, 2012 2:38 PM

I saw them on the side stage at Curiosa back when nobody cared. I sang, I danced, I cried. Ok that's a lie. I sat in the grass way in the back and ate an overpriced burrito. I was still there though and that makes me cooler than most of you.

Note on Bowery show in NYC: Due to legalities with the State of New York, the Sufjan Stevens show will not go on-sale until December 19th, two days before the show. The goal was to stop scalpers from getting ahold of the tickets by making tickets available only through will call. Unfortunately, state law prohibits paperless shows and making this on-sale two days before the Sufjan show was the best solution. Thank you for understanding as we try to provide an equal buying opportunity for all fans. We are truly sorry for any inconvenience this has caused anyone.
