Modern indie folk icon Sufjan Stevens is planning an oddball tour to support his forthcoming release Silver & Gold: Songs For Christmas, Volumes 6-10.

The release is comprised of five EPs containing eighteen Christmas-themed tracks, featuring help from members of The National, Arcade Fire, and more. Included in the package will be stickers, temporary tattoos, an ornament, poster, and lyric sheets with chord charts. Stevens also personally designed several “hallucinogenic photographs and psychedelic graphic design” for the package.

Accompanying Stevens on his tour will be Sheila Saputo, better known as frequent Sufjan Stevens collaborator Rosie Thomas. The tour’s lengthy title may be a bit misleading for some, called, “Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long: Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant on Ice.” Check out the tour dates below.
