I'm done trying to predict what Sufjan Stevens does next since he's all about surprising people under the radar; yesterday he announced his new LP, Age of Adz, and today comes the album's first single, "I Walked." It's below, and I expect that people expecting the lush orchestration of Illinoise are about to be bummed. Though this is a good look for Sufjan, as his voice cuts through the murk and bounce beautifully, especially when he's bolstered by that backing chorus. Listen now.
Age of Adz is due out on Oct. 12 via Asthmatic Kitty.
