Sufjan Stevens Carrie & Lowell “Silent” Listening Parties Begin Tomorrow In NYC; Here Are The Album Lyrics

In the lead-up to the release of Carrie & Lowell, Asthmatic Kitty will be holding “silent” listening parties worldwide for the new Sufjan Steven album. They are being dubbed the “Sufjan Stevens Indies Only Silent Listening Party,” and the first one will take place at Other Music in New York City tomorrow (2/28). All of them will go a little something like this: Preorder the record from the store, then show up at the appointed time, and you’ll be able to listen to a test pressing LP through some high-quality headphones. Sounds fun, right? To prepare you for the listening parties, the label has also shared all of the lyrics to the album. You can check those out and some of the listening party dates below.
