Sufjan Stevens Announces Christmas Album Tour

By October 17, 2012

Follow me on:

Sufjan Stevens recently announced plans for his second 5LP Christmas box-set, Silver & Gold. Now, he's planning a tour to go with.

Being Sufjan Stevens, it's not merely a tour. It's the Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant On Ice. No word on whether it will actually be on actual ice, but those from Stevens' Great Lake home state may want to bring a good luck octopus just in case.

Sufjan's already unveiled two songs from amongst the 58: the shambolic "Ding-a-ling-a-ring-a-ling" and the 12-minute, Joy Division-riffing, proggy psych-pop opus "Christmas Unicorn." Only 56 more to go. (Oh, and 48 states, still, too...)
