Sufjan Stevens and stepfather Lowell Brams have shared euphoric new track "Climb That Mountain" from their forthcoming collaborative LP Aporia.
Aporia was created over several years during Brams' visits to Stevens' New York home. Stevens says of the process, "You know how it is with jamming: ninety percent of it is absolutely horrible, but if you’re just lucky enough, ten percent is magic. I just kept pulling out these little magical moments."
The album will also include contributions from Thomas Bartlett (Doveman), D.M. Stith, Nick Berry (Dots Will Echo), John Ringhofer (Half-handed Cloud) drummer and longtime collaborator James McAlister, keyboardist and trombonist Steve Moore (Sunn O)))), guitarist Yuuki Matthews (The Shins), and vocalist Cat Martino.
Aporia will be Stevens' first album since releasing The Decalogue score in October 2019.
