New Sufjan Stevens? New Sufjan Stevens. (Live at Castaways) (tour dates / video)

by Tyler Gould

There was a time a few years ago when Sufjan Stevens, if he gerrymandered a district in such a way as to include music fans of a certain indie persuasion, could have made a successful run for Congress. Illinois had just come out, and the more starry-eyed among us were ecstatic at the prospect of 48 more state-themed albums.

Those salad days are now long behind us, with nary a song to show for it, aside from a few outtakes, Christmas songs, and a multimedia project. But don’t despair! Yon multi-talented music-maker is on tour right now, and he comes bearing good tidings and the gift of new song. “There’s Too Much Love” has his characteristic charm and a sojourn into unexplored territory that is, to say the least, enticing. Video below, remaining tour dates after the jump.
