Sufjan Stevens — Silver and Gold Infomercial

Looks like Sufjan Stevens is up to some interesting things these days. I had heard about his work on his recent christmas albums and his tour, and I have to admit I just felt miserable for him. This is how he bounces back from the depressed depths he explored in of the Age of Adz? Sounds like he’s in good spirits about it all if he’s promoting it with videos like this, though.

Regarding the recent use of his music on a Red Bull commercial, he said

Selling out never looked so good. But someone had to pay for all that Christmas confetti.

Personally, I want to see him get back to his old work. I want to see him make a few more US state-inspired albums, or another EP like All Delighted People. Hope he doesn’t go crazy before he can do all that.
