Sufjan Stevens releases first single from ‘Carrie & Lowell,’ adds Fox date

sufjan-a

Indie folk guy Sufjan Stevens released a trailer for his upcoming record, Carrie & Lowell, last month, and now he’s unleashed the first single, “No Shade In The Shadow Of The Cross,” from his seventh studio record. It’s a sparse, breathy track that’s not exactly out of line with a lot of Stevens’ established wheel house of sparse, breathy, dreamy tunes (though it is a departure from the darker turns from his previous record, The Age of Adz).

Stevens embarks on a North American tour in April, and has added a date to the Bay Area: He’ll be playing a second show at the Fox Theater in Oakland on June 6th, in addition to his previously announced June 5th show.

Check out the single below, as well as expanded tour dates.
