In Carrie and Lowell, Sufjan Stevens is a child again or, more specifically, the child character in the family of man drama that often but not always centers on the story of love given, or love forsaken, but isn't that the same thing to the poet? Carrie and Lowell is filled with colors, hearts, trees, conclusions, and beginnings, all adding up to the kind of intimacy that listeners crave. Sufjan Stevens has created a beautiful solitary and rich record filled with faith and disbelief and the resurrection of trust and dreams.
Sufjan Stevens has always written personally, weaving his life story into larger narratives, but here his autobiography is front and center. Carrie & Lowell is a return to the stripped-back folk of Seven Swans, but with a decade's worth of refinement and exploration packed into it.
Carrie and Lowell features the singles "No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross", "Should Have Known Better" and "Carrie & Lowell".
