It may be a little early to be writing Christmas-related posts quite yet, but lets face it, we’re all yearning for an excuse to eat more in one day than one should in a lifetime, ever! On that note, FFS are very excited to hear that Sufjan Stevens has announced the release of a Christmas Box Set, titled: ‘Silver and Gold: Vols. 6 – 10’.
This extravaganza consists of a compilation of 5 EP’s recored between 2006 and 2010. Silver & Gold is a generous document of five more years of holly-jolly collaborative songwriting—undertaken by Sufjan and his various musical cohorts. Originally intended as gifts for family and friends, these musical snapshots have been re-assembled for the public in an exquisitely-designed gift box containing some very special christmas themed surprises indeed.
On top of that, the album features collaborations with a running line-up of friends and musical peers, including Aaron and Bryce Dessner (The National), Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire), DM Stith (The Revival Hour), and many more of our favourite musicians here at FFS HQ.
Silver & Gold will be available in digital download, a CD box-set available November 13th, with a vinyl box-set available later this year or early 2013.
FFS present a sneak-peak of what is to come, with Stevens’ very own ‘Christmas Unicorn’…
