Stevens got deep about Carrie & Lowell in a recent interview with Pitchfork. “I’m being explicit about really horrifying experiences in my life, but my hope has always been to be responsible as an artist and to avoid indulging in my misery, or to come off as an exhibitionist. I don’t want to make the listener complicit in my vulnerable prose poem of depression, I just want to honor the experience.I’m not the victim here, and I’m not seeking other people’s sympathy.”

This is his seventh non-Christmas-themed album, and the first album to be completely filled with folk arrangements which portray the heartbreak of the subject matter.

You can stream the album here. The album will be released on March 31st. You can pre-order it here.

Sufjan will also be headlining the upcoming Vivid Live festival in Sydney. Tickets go on sale on Friday, more details here.
