Sufjan Stevens - "I'll Be Home For Christmas" video

Sufjan Stevens’s holiday-themed EP box set Silver & Gold: Songs For Christmas comes out today, and he’s already made two very, very different videos for songs from the EP: The splattery satire of “Mr. Frosty Man” and the familial warmth of “Silver & Gold.” Now, in the new video for his impressionistic version of the standard “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” Sufjan goes a third way: Lynchian dread! The video follows a little girl running in slow-motion Christmas-morning glee through a house where creepy and cryptic but seasonally appropriate things are going down. Aaron + Alex Craig direct; watch it below. UPDATE: You can now stream the entire box set on Bandcamp. Head below.

Silver & Gold: Songs For Christmas is out today on Asthmatic Kitty.

  1. I bought this album when it came out at midnight and it is so unbelievably good. Destroys the first five volumes. ‘The Midnight Clear’ is straight up folk heaven, on par with almost any cut from Illinois.

  2. I still can’t believe there is a Christmas album so so so freakin’ good as Silver and Gold.

  3. This looks a bit like this..
