Man of many talents and owner of many pairs of wings, Sufjan Stevens
, posted a previously unreleased track to his Tumblr
today. It’s a belated birthday gift for his sister, and was, according to Stevens’ SoundCloud, recorded sometime around 1998.
It sure sounds
like Sufjan recorded it on a 4-track in 1998, because the glitchy, symphonic sound of 2010′s Age Of Adz
has been replaced with a minimal acoustic guitar and barely-there vocals. Really, it’s so gosh darn breathy it sounds like that Ying Yang Twins song
