We’ve seen plenty of covers and interpretations of Drake‘s chart-busting hit Hotline Bling since its release, ranging from the enjoyably earnest (Art Of Sleeping, Sam Smith and Disclosure) to the ridiculously amazing (Mr. G) to the downright terrible (Mike Tyson). But this one probably takes the cake for the most dedicated. Sufjan Stevens has been
US singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens has announced a 2016 Australian tour which will hit up theatres and concert halls in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane across February and March.

When Sufjan Stevens announced his intention to produce albums based on all 50 states of the US – beginning with the release of Michigan in 2003, followed by the much acclaimed Illinois in 2005 – it was seen as eager and not to mention impossibly ambitious. After all, to complete albums of similar calibre would
When Sufjan Stevens was announced on this year’s Vivid LIVE lineup in March, it was mainly his Sydney-based fans who rejoiced. Stevens’ four Sydney Opera House Vivid shows are his only Australian dates for the time being, but the singer-songwriter has now said he’s looking towards 2016 for a full-blown Aussie jaunt. Speaking with Zan
A matter of geography put Sufjan Stevens on the map for many listeners some 10 years ago, with the release of his seminal LP Illinois. It was a grandiose, weighty, widescreen indie-pop opus; equal parts celebration, observation, introspection and damnation. Those that knew of Stevens’ work prior to Illinois‘ release, however, would have had a
Vivid LIVE‘s huge 2015 lineup has been unveiled, with performances from the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Daniel Johns, TV On The Radio, The Drones, Flume and The Preatures joining Morrissey on the event’s official program.

Let’s be honest here. We all have our theories, no doubt based on our own preferences, of how a person’s intelligence correlates with their taste in music. Now, thanks to a software application writer named Virgil Griffith, there’s a handy chart that does all the pesky mathematics for you. As reported by Consequence of Sound,
Sufjan Stevens, of all people, has been the latest celebrity to throw their unsolicited 2 cents at Miley Cyrus, though the chillwave bro has chosen a much more subtle approach towards “bettering” the pop star while also taking the opportunity to have a cheeky flirt. Oh, Sufjan, you old dog. Whereas Sinead O’Conner and Amanda
The National’s upcoming album, Trouble Will Find Me, is coming together with the help of some very impressive guests including Sufjan Stevens, Richard Reed Parry from Arcade Fire, St Vincent and Sharon Van Etten.

Sufjan Stevens has trawled through his old hard drive and found a previously unreleased track. And, ’cause he’s a wicked guy, he’s posted it on his Tumblr page – Wittgenstein Flies a Kite – for the world to listen to. Give a Little Love is described by Stevens on the pages as an “abandoned song
Oh no, it’s not time to start getting ready for Christmas yet is it? IS IT!? Well, Sufjan Stevens is of the persuasion that it is and has set November 13 as the official release date for not his first, but his second Christmas box set. Titled Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas, Vols. 6-10,
Sufjan Stevens has been out here recently playing a series of Planetarium concerts with composer Nico Muhly and the National’s Bryce Dessner at Sydney’s Vivid LIVE, with the three of them playing compositions inspired by the planets of the solar system.

As the sun set and the light installations were turned on for the evening, it seemed as if the entire hipster delegation from Surry Hills journeyed to the Sydney Opera House to witness what would be one of the most peculiar concerts this year.
These days Sufjan Stevens gives the impression of being a very troubled soul. First it was the existential crisis he endured around the time of the release of The BQE, two years ago, and now it seems he may have been brought to the brink of a nervous breakdown during a viewing of the Wes
