Watch: Sufjan Stevens ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ Cover At Vivid LIVE 2012

Written by Brayden Darke on June 1, 2012

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.

Those shows finished up last night, and Sufjan ended the set by covering Somewhere Over The Rainbow, with a spacey vocoder used with his vocals, I guess to fit it in with the whole ‘space’ feeling of the show.

He begins the song by claiming that it used to remind him of outer space, but then he realised that after his week out here, it actually reminds him of Australia.
