Sufjan Stevens "The Greatest Gift Mixtape" erscheint nächste Woche bei Asthmatic Kitty

Track "Wallowa Lake Monster" bereits online!

(lifePR) (Wuppertal, ) SUFJAN STEVENS veröffentlicht am 24. November mit „The Greatest Gift Mixtape” eine Kollektion von Outtakes, Remixes und Demos seines 2015 veröffentlichtem Album „Carrie & Lowell” (Asthmatic Kitty). „The Greatest Gift Mixtape” wird als gelbe Cassette, durchsichtigem gelben Vinyl und in allen digitalen Formaten via Asthamtic Kitty veröffentlicht. Ein Teil der Erlöse geht davon an die Cancer Support Community.

Ebenfalls am 24. November läuft in den USA das auf diversen Festivals in diesem Jahr bereits gefeierte romantische Filmdrama von Luca Guadagnino „Call Me By Your Name” an (Kinostart in Deutschland 1. März 2018). SUFJAN STEVENS steuerte zu dem Film mit Armie Hammer und Timothée Chalamet mit „Mystery Of Love“ und „Visions Of Gideon“ zwei neue Songs und mit einer Neuaufnahme des Songs „Futile Devices“ aus seinem Album „The Age Of Adz“ ein drittes Lied bei.

„The Greatest Gift Mixtape” Inhalt:

„The Greatest Gift Mixtape”  unveils new remixes by several longstanding collaborators: Roberto C. Lange (a.k.a. Helado Negro) remixes both „Death With Dignity” and „All Of Me Wants All Of You;” Thomas Bartlett (a.k.a. Doveman) remixes „Exploding Whale,” a song previously only available as a 7-inch single; and James McAlister (a.k.a. 900X) remixes „Fourth Of July.” The album also features STEVENS’ own remix of „Drawn To The Blood.” The mixtape also includes alternate and/or demo versions of songs from the original album, including a fingerpicking version of „Drawn To The Blood,” and iPhone-recorded demo versions of „John My Beloved” and „Carrie & Lowell.” Finally, the mixtape features four previously unreleased new songs, “official” outtakes from „Carrie & Lowell” recorded at the same time as the album. These include „Wallowa Lake Monster” as well as „The Hidden River Of My Life,” „City Of Roses” and “The Greatest Gift.”

The new collection serves as a companion piece to the original album, alongside the „Carrie & Lowell” Live album released earlier this year.


A vocalist and songwriter currently living in New York, NY, STEVENS’ preoccupation with epic concepts has motivated two state records („Michigan” and „Illinois”), a collection of sacred and biblical songs („Seven Swans”), an electronic album for the animals of the Chinese zodiac („Enjoy Your Rabbit”), two Christmas box sets („Songs For Christmas”, vol. 1-5 and „Silver & Gold”, vol. 6-10), and a BAM-commissioned programmatic tone poem for the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (The BQE). In 2010 STEVENS released an expansive EP („All Delighted People”) and the full length „The Age Of Adz”, a collection of songs partly inspired by the outsider artist Royal Robertson. STEVENS’ „Planetarium”, a collaborative album with Nico Muhly, Bryce Dessner and James McAlister imbued with themes of the cosmos, was released this year to widespread critical praise.
