Sufjan Stevens announces new live album

And one with pictures too, like watching Nigel Farage broadcasting on LBC (but with slightly less casual fascism). Pitchfork reports: “Sufjan Stevens has announced a new audiovisual live album, Carrie & Lowell Live, due out April 28 on Asthmatic Kitty. It was recorded on November 9, 2015 at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center in South Carolina, on Sufjan’s tour in support of his last album, Carrie & Lowell. As Asthmatic Kitty points out, today… is the birthday of the titular Lowell Brams, who is Sufjan’s stepfather and co-founder of the label. It is also the two-year anniversary of the album’s release. The album will be released in both audio and video forms, with the video available on YouTube and Vimeo. The tracklist, which can be found below, features Sufjan and Gallant’s cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” 

Last year, Sufjan released a video of his performance of the title track from this North Charleston concert. Watch that below.

On June 9, Sufjan will release Planetarium, a collaborative album with the National’s Bryce Dessner and Nico Muhly.
