Sufjan Stevens – “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” Video

By Tom Breihan / November 13, 2012 - 8:55 am

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.
