i just had to let you know that Carrie & Lowell, the new album by Sufjan Stevens, is streaming right now over at NPR, The Guardian and Pitchfork. it is a wonderful, wonderful album – i have already played it twice today.
Carrie & Lowell is named for Stevens’ mother and stepfather, and its 11 songs are about “life and death, love and loss, and the artist’s struggle to make sense of the beauty and ugliness of love.”
the album releases on 31 March. cannot wait to add it to my collection. have a listen below.
