Sufjan Stevens New/Old Single "Sofia's Song"

sufjan_stevensSufjan wrote an entertaining post over at Asthmatic Kitty Records’ Sidebar about his youth, his name and the stages that he went through in song writing.

I wrote songs for the days of the week (poor Monday!). Songs for the planets (poor Pluto!). Songs for the Apostles (poor Judas!). And, finally, when all else failed, I started a series of songs for names.

Sufjan recently stumbled upon those old songs in cassettes, 4 tracks and old hard drives and has released one of the songs that he wrote for Sophia Coppola, titled, creatively, “Sophia’s Song”. This is also probably the shortest song title that he has ever come up with.

You can stream the song here. Hopefully he will continue to release these early rare tracks periodically.
