Sufjan Stevens "No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross"

Sufjan Stevens "No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross"
This spring, Sufjan Stevens will return with a new album called Carrie & Lowell. Ahead of its release, he's shared the new song "No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross."

The two-and-a-half-minute song is a timeless and haunting folk tune built on finger picked guitars and layered vocals from Sufjan. It's a return to simplicity for an artist that often focuses on grand gestures. 

Listen to "No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross" below. Carrie & Lowell will arrive on March 31 via Asthmatic Kitty.
