Sufjan Stevens just released a new EP entitled All Delighted People. You can pick it up on his Bandcamp page here.
His website reads: "The EP, All Delighted People, is built around two different versions of Sufjan’s long-form epic ballad "All Delighted People," a dramatic homage to the Apocalypse, existential ennui, and Paul Simon’s "Sounds of Silence." Sounds delightful, yes! The song was originally workshopped (oh we hate making workshop a verb, but time is money!) on Sufjan’s previous tour in the fall of 2009. Other songs on the EP include the 17-minute guitar jam-for-single-mothers "Djohariah," and the gothic piano ballad "The Owl and the Tanager," a live-show mainstay (and Debbie Downer if you ask us; what’s it doing on a "Delighted" EP?). The full track list is available below."
All Delighted People:
01 All Delighted People (Original Version)
02 Enchanting Ghost
04 From the Mouth of Gabriel
05 The Owl and the Tanager
