“I Walked” – Sufjan Stevens


Following his announcement a few days ago that he will be releasing an album in October, Sufjan Stevens released a track from his new album, The Age of Adz.

It’s been said that the title, “The Age of Adz” references the art of Royal Robertson (1930-1997), a schizophrenic Louisianan sign-maker whose artwork was modeled after his dreams and visions of space aliens, monsters, futuristic cars, and “signs of the Last Judgment.” Some of this artwork, primarily made from poster board, magic markers, and glitter, appears in the album art.

Just as is to be expected with new material from Sufjan, this song is incredible. The band of female choral voices singing in the background perfectly matches his voice in the hazy background. And though I am not always a huge fan of echoing sounds, it just works so well in this song.

Tell me, do you think of me now, as I think of you?
