Sufjan Stevens releases first song off new album (listen)

by Andrew Sacher

Sufjan

Sufjan Stevens has said his new album Carrie & Lowell (due 3/31 via Asthmatic Kitty) would be a return to his folk roots, and its first, just-released single “No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross” definitely seems to be proof of that. It’s mostly him and an acoustic guitar, and it’s as gorgeous as much of his early work. Check it out below.

His upcoming tour includes three NYC shows, one of which you can still get tickets for.
