It seems like it was only yesterday that Sufjan Stevens surprised the internet by releasing his EP “All Delighted People” on Bandcamp, so I was rather surprised to see a new single off his upcoming record “The Age of Adz” had already been released. The five minutes of “I Walked” is heavy on the percussion, a bit of a new approach to Sufjan’s typical folk-pop. To be honest, I’m pleasantly surprised. I believe wholeheartedly that band ought to evolve and adapt, and I was a little disappointed that his EP didn’t do too much of that. Here, however, we’re finding ourselves presented by something completely different.
What’s your take? You can head over to Sufjan’s Bandcamp to download “I Walked” by clicking the album artwork on this page.
