Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell - Artwork

American singer/songwriter SUFJAN STEVENS returns with his first solo album in almost five years. Carrie & Lowell is the name of the new longplayer which is set for a release on March 30 in Europe and March 31 in North America via Asthmatic Kitty. It follows 2010’s The Age of Adz and various other projects by Mr. STEVENS in the past years, including his side-project SISYPHUS, featuring SON LUX and SERENGETI.

According to the new album’s press release, the record is named after STEVENS‘ mother and stepfather, features eleven songs about ‘life and death, love and loss, and the artist’s struggle to make sense of the beauty and ugliness of love.’ It will also see a return to the artist’s ‘folk roots.’ You can find the tracklist right here as well as a first teaser for the record below.
