Sufjan Stevens - No Shade In The Shadow Of The Cross

It's been five years since Sufjan Stevens released The Age Of Adz.  Five years before that, Sufjan released Illinois, so it only makes sense that he would choose this year to release his upcoming album, Carrie & Lowell.  Today, you can hear the first sampling of Carrie & Lowell.  "No Shade In The Shadow Of The Cross" is the album's penultimate track and shows Sufjan going back to a stripped down folk-oriented sound.  Gone are the Adz beats and electronic elements of Enjoy Your Rabbit.  Check it out below...

Carrie & Lowell is out on March 31, via Asthmatic Kitty.  There are still a few copies of the limited edition clear vinyl available for pre-order through independent record stores, so grab one while you can.  I just snagged one yesterday!  Hint: go this way.

For more insight on the making of Carrie & Lowell, check out Pitchfork's new feature, "True Myth: A Conversation With Sufjan Stevens".
