Following a national tour this spring, Sufjan Stevens is set to embark on a tour of the U.S. this fall, playing dates in Santa Barbara, Nashville, Atlanta and Miami.
Carrie & Lowell was recorded by Stevens alongside Casey Foubert, Laura Veirs, Nedelle Torrisi, Sean Carey, Ben Lester and Thomas Bartlett. Named for Stevens’ mother and stepfather, the 11 songs address life and death, love and loss, and the artist’s struggle to make sense of the beauty and ugliness of love.
A singer-songwriter currently living in Brooklyn, NY, Stevens’ preoccupation with epic concepts has motivated two state records (Michigan & 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), a BAM-commissioned programmatic tone poem for the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (The BQE), two collaborations with New York City Ballet choreographer and dancer Justin Peck, and an instrumental accompaniment to slow-motion rodeo footage—a second BAM-commission. In 2010 Stevens released an expansive EP (All Delighted People) and the full length The Age of Adz.
