Sufjan Stevens new full-length project titled ‘The Ascension’ is scheduled to arrive streaming platforms September, 25 via Asthmatic Kitty Records.
Today, he serves another offering titled ‘Sugar’ prior to his recently released ‘America’ and ‘Video Game’ off the LP which serves as the follow-up to his 2015’s ‘Carrie & Lowell’.
“‘Sugar’ is ultimately about the desire for goodness and purity (and true sustenance), on the surface the song is just a string of clichés, but the message is imperative: now is the time to gather what is good and pure and valuable and make it your own, and share it with others. Feed your soul and speak new life into those around you. Give each other love, respect and sacrifice. Relinquish all the old habits, all the old ways of thinking and doing, all former practices—‘business as usual’—and bring new life to the world. This is our calling.”” Sufjan Stevens said in a statement.
The new single is accompanied by a choreographed official video. Watch below. Also checkout the tracklist to the forthcoming album below.
