"Carrie & Lowell is a record without answers, heavy with doubt despite Stevens' faith in God and at least a willingness on his part to continue to believe that family and love and relationships are worth it despite the traumas, darkness and heartache."

The title-track from Sufjan Stevens' forthcoming album Carrie & Lowell is available to stream thanks to Mary Anne Hobbs and her excellent BBC Radio 6 show. As that above quote suggests, we fell in love with the album, so we definitely recommend checking this track out (jump to the 33:00 mark).
