Sufjan Stevens shares ‘Carrie & Lowell’ outtake “Wallowa Lake Monster”


As mentioned, Sufjan Stevens is releasing a new mixtape called The Greatest Gift, which collects outtakes, remixes and demos from his excellent 2015 album Carrie & Lowell. It includes four previously-unreleased songs from the sessions, “The Hidden River of My Life,” “City of Roses,” “The Greatest Gift,” and “Wallowa Lake Monster,” the latter of which is now available to stream. It’s a gorgeous song that’s cut from the same cloth as the songs that did make it onto Carrie & Lowell. If you’re a fan of that album, you can and should stream this song below.

The remixes on the album were done by Helado Negro, Doveman, Sufjan’s Planetarium collaborator James McAlister, and Sufjan himself. See the full tracklist below.

The album comes out November 24 via Asthmatic Kitty. Pre-order it here. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Cancer Support Community.

The same day this album comes out, Luca Guadagnino’s new film Call Me By Your Name comes out featuring more new music from Sufjan.
