Although we’re still waiting on hearing the identity of the lucky someone who’ll get the greatest Sufjan gift of all (their very own Sufsong!), and although this is not quite as large an Xmas offering from St. Stevens (with a rose, in and out of the garden he goes) as we’ve had in years past … it is a gift nonetheless, and a cute (albeit brief) addition to our previous editions of 2007 holiday MP3s. From the intro, sounds like Sufjan and his group of caroling children knocked this out in one take, including bells, drums, and lots of remnant guitar chatter echoing those words of the governor.
The track comes today, as Day 8 in Sounds Familyre’s baker’s dozen of carols and new holiday tunes from the Familyre famile’s stable of artists. Head over there to download more holiday treats.
