Sing Us a Song You're the Sufjan

New Sufjan music news! And per usual, it's a lot -- no little projects for our favorite try-hard. He's just this morning announced Convocations, a five-volume 49-track (!!!) song-cycle  that deals with the death of his biological father last year -- it sounds like this is another instrumental album(s) a la last year's Aporia, so we're once again being denied that sweet sweet voice of his, but we'll deal since he makes amazing music besides. 

He's releasing one album a week digitally -- they're individually titled Meditations, Lamentations, Revelations, Celebrations and Incantations -- starting this Friday, with the first song available right this minute at this link. This Thursday a pre-order for a big no-doubt beautiful boxed-set on vinyl of the entire thing will go live -- those will ship in August. Guess I better find some room on my shelves...
