New Sufjan Stevens EP available now

Stream it all hear, or buy the MP3's

Sufjan Stevens

CD and LP later this year.

The EP, All Delighted People, is built around two different versions of Sufjan’s long-form epic ballad "All Delighted People," a dramatic homage to the Apocalypse, existential ennui, and Paul Simon’s "Sounds of Silence." Sounds delightful, yes! The song was originally workshopped (oh we hate making workshop a verb, but time is money!) on Sufjan’s previous tour in the fall of 2009. Other songs on the EP include the 17-minute guitar jam-for-single-mothers "Djohariah," and the gothic piano ballad "The Owl and the Tanager," a live-show mainstay (and Debbie Downer if you ask us; what’s it doing on a "Delighted" EP?). The full track list is available right here.

All Delighted People:

01 All Delighted People (Original Version)
02 Enchanting Ghost
03 Heirloom
04 From the Mouth of Gabriel
05 The Owl and the Tanager
06 All Delighted People (Classic Rock Version)
07 Arnika
08 Djohariah


Apparently it's 60 minutes as well. Nice.

This hardly counts as an EP.

But...

I was hoping it would be District of Columbia.

Seemed nice, but not much memorable material on first listen for me. Anyone else check it out yet, what did you think?

Thanks! Does anyone know if All Delighted People (the song) played during the tour last year (apart from "workshopped")?

According to setlist.fm he played it in the show I saw last year. Not that I can remember, really. I seem to recall a very, very long new song, so it must have been this.

Anyways, there is some good stuff in the EP, but nothing that I found amazing. I need a few more listens before forming an opinion.

Sheeeeeeeeesh! Lots of new Sujfan to become acquainted with before the concertings.

Ironically, this album will receive a physical release before the EP does.

I really like "Enchanting Ghost" and "Heirloom." They have the same rustic, somber feel as Seven Swans, which is my favorite Sufjan album.

It could also be much shorter.
