Listen to Chris Schlarb's take on The Beach Boys' 'Til I Die', featuring Sufjan Stevens
Taken from Chris Schlarb's forthcoming Psychic Temple II album, 'Til I Die' is a cover of one of The Beach Boys' lesser known tracks (Fact: It's one of the few Beach Boys songs which both the words and music were written solely by Wilson - thanks Wikipedia) and features the ever-brilliant Sufjan Stevens.
