Listen to the New Sufjan Stevens Song 'America'
Earlier this week, American singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens announced plans to release his eighth studio album The Ascension. Now, the artist has shared the first new single from the record, "America."

The song arrives alongside a new Stevens-filmed music video, which you can watch below. And get yourself comfortable — the song stretches past the 12-minute mark.

The Ascension — arriving on September 25 via Asthmatic Kitty Records — will mark the first solo studio release from Stevens since 2015's Carrie & Lowell. Earlier this year, the artist released a 21-track New Age album titled Aporia with his stepfather Lowell Brams.
