SUFJAN STEVENS RELEASES “ALL DELIGHTED PEOPLE” EP — TODAY

Asthmatic Kitty Records is releasing Sufjan Stevens’ new EP All Delighted People today exclusively via http://sufjanstevens.bandcamp.com for $5.00. Bandcamp is also offering a free stream of the EP. On August 23 the EP will be available for purchase from most digital stores and will appear on CD and vinyl later this year. All Delighted People includes two versions of the title track which debuted on Sufjan’s 2009 tour along with six other new songs. The collection is Sufjan’s first original song-oriented material since 2006. Included on the EP is the first recording of live-show mainstay “The Owl and the Tanager” and the elegiac “Djohariah.” Along with the guitars, piano and banjo that characterize his previous recordings, choirs, strings and brass adorn the melodies. Please see below for track listing.

Sufjan Stevens has released eight studio recordings since 2000 including the critically acclaimed Michigan and Illinois (the latter named the “Best Album of the Decade” by Paste); a 5-EP Christmas box set; Enjoy Your Rabbit, an instrumental electronic song cycle based on the animals of the Chinese Zodiac; and The BQE, a film and musical suite exploring New York City’s infamous Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. Run Rabbit Run, a recording of Enjoy Your Rabbit rearranged for the Osso String Quartet, was released in 2009 via Asthmatic Kitty.
