Yesterday, rumours become reality as news about another Sufjan Stevens Christmas album was leaked.
Next month, the indie babe will be delivering a king-sized boxset containing 58 songs and five EPs. The collection will be titled Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas, Volumes 6-10.
Sufjan has enlisted the help from a few of his usual cohorts. Among them are Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National, and Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry.
‘Christmas Unicorn’ is the first seasonal song from his amazing new offering. At the end of the track, you will hear Sufjan sample Joy Division‘s ’Love Will Tear Us Apart.’
“I’m the Christmas Unicorn; you’re the Christmas Unicorn too. It’s alright, I love you.” We love you too, Sufjan.
Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas, Volumes 6-10 will be out physically and digitally on November 13 through Asthmatic Kitty.
