Published Dec 16, 2010Back in 2006, Sufjan Stevens released the massive Songs for Christmas, a five-EP set that contained versions of seasonal classics plus a slew of original songs. One of those originals was the chilly, slow-building "Sister Winter." Now, former Everything But the Girl singer Tracey Thorn has covered the track on her holiday giveaway, Christmas Stocking.
