Sufjan Stevens- “A Little Lost” (Arthur Russell cover)

Sufjan Stevens all but abandoned his signature lavishly adorned indie folk style and made a bold foray into landscape of dark, glitchy, electronic music for his last proper (non-Christmas music) album, 2010’s “The Age of Adz.” Since then, he teamed up with rapper Serengeti and producer Son Lux earlier this year to create the hip hop/electronic/indie fusion project “Sisyphus,” and now he has resurfaced with a cover of Arthur Russell’s “A Little Lost.”

This cover would have fit right in on Sisyphus’ debut; it’s stylistically in line with the tracks on that album that showcase his vocals, but with an added sense of grandeur and jubilation that recalls his early albums, “Michigan” and “Illinoise.”
