Sufjan Stevens – Carrie & Lowell (2015)

... Album Of The Month ...
In the nearly five years since Sufjan Stevens released The Age of Adz, he’s worked with the ballet, scored a rodeo documentary, released more Christmas music, and released an album and EP with his side project Sisyphus. This year, he’s releasing a new full-length. Carrie & Lowell is out March 30 via Asthmatic Kitty.
According to a press release, the album was 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.” It’s also billed as a return to Stevens’ “folk roots,” according to the press release.
Collaborators on the album include Casey Foubert, Laura Veirs, Nedelle Torrisi, Sean Carey, Ben Lester, and Thomas Bartlett.
