Sufjan Stevens Streams Beautiful New Album, ‘Carrie & Lowell’

sufjan stevens carrie & lowell

Sufjan Stevens is streaming his new LP, Carrie & Lowell, over at NPR’s First Listen.

A return to form for Stevens after his last LP, the electronic adventure known as Age Of Adz, Carrie & Lowell is an intimate folk journey named after his mother, who passed away in 2012. The album reignites memories of Sufjan traveling to Oregon in the summers with his mother and stepfather.

Featuring 11 tracks of melancholic folk music, Carrie & Lowell is a beautifully harrowing experience of fond memories, and the sorrow of dealing with passing.

Be sure to head over to NPR to check out the album for yourself, and if you like what you hear, pre-orders are still available here. You can also read up on the story of his mother and stepfather here.
