    Next month, Sufjan Stevens will return with his first new album in five years, Carrie & Lowell. In anticipation, he’s unveiled the album track “No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross”. Listen below.

    Carrie & Lowell arrives March 31st through Asthmatic Kitty Records. Spanning 11 tracks, the album was recorded by Stevens alongside Casey Foubert, Laura Veirs, Nedelle Torrisi, Sean Carey, Ben Lester, and Thomas Bartlett and mixed by Stevens, Bartlett and Pat Dillet.
