  • £11.88

Format: CD
Catalogue No.: AKR150CD
Release Date: 25th September 2020

 ‘The Ascension’ is the long-awaited follow up to Sufjan’s 2015 album, ‘Carrie and Lowell’, and is the eighth studio album from the singer, songwriter and composer.
 It is a salient collection of fifteen pop songs that, with sweeping editorial aplomb, interrogate the integrity and sustainability of our human existence.
 The album seeks to confront the psychic trauma of our current apocalyptic condition by highlighting the disparity between survival and despair - while
trying to maintain a path towards truth and light.
 Sufjan recorded almost everything on ‘The Ascension’ himself on his computer using a drum machine and a handful of synthesizers, his goal clear from the start: Keep it simple. Keep it real. Keep it moving. 
 “Equally extraordinary and powerful, Stevens’s new song is a 12-minute-plus masterpiece” - The Sunday Times (Hottest Tracks)
 “‘America’ is a 12-minute triumph” - Clash
 Double LP in tip-on gatefold sleeve.
 Also available to independent retailers on clear vinyl.
 Gold-coloured cassette.
