This Tuesday, Sufjan Stevens will release his second set of Christmas songs – a five disc, 58 song collection titled Silver & Gold. Over the past few weeks, Stevens has slowly made available various tracks from the compilation and now he’s released a music video for “Silver & Gold,” a track that shares a title with the album, but interestingly enough does not appear on it’s tracklisting.
The song is simple – Stevens and a piano, accompanied by vocal harmonies towards the track’s mid-section and it’s video follows a young boy as he plays on a beach. Filmed on Super 8 mm camera, it makes for great companion to the mellow and lo-fi track. [A Heart Is A Spade]
