It’s been five long years since Sufjan Stevens released the phenomenal ‘Illinois’, his last full length ‘song based’ album. In those five years though he has been working pretty had, he’s put out a box set of christmas songs, a movie and soundtrack, a reworked version of his second album, a outakes collection and an e.p. Still it’s nice to know that on October 12th we will finally be able to hear the proper follow-up to ‘Illinois’. According to his website the album will not be a concept album and it will instead deal with love, loss, and the apocalypse. It also sounds like the album will be more electronic than his older material  with Sufjan saying ‘acoustic guitars give way to drum machines and analog synthesizers.’

If you can’t wait till October Sufjan has just released the e.p ‘All the delighted People’, you can order it now and listen to a track below
