The American indie rock singer and multi-instrumentalist Sufjan Stevens announced last month that he will released his album The Greatest Gift on November 24. It is a mixtape full of outtakes, remixes and demos from his 2015 album Carrie & Lowell.
Today the Detroit artist has just unveiled an unreleased song entitled “Wallowa Lake Monster” which was recorded during the session of Carrie & Lowell album. This one is a sad album in which Sufjan gives free vent of thoughts about the complex relationship with his mother and her next death.
Indeed in one of his track “Should Have Known Better” he says “I should have wrote a letter and grieve what i happen to grieve / my black shroud / I never trust my feelings / I waited for the remedy” or in the track “Eugene“, he claims “What’s left is only bittersweet / For the rest of my life, admitting the best is behind me/ Now I’m drunk and afraid, wishing the world would go away / What’s the point of singing songs / If they’ll never even hear you?“.
“Wallow Lake Monster” also tackle the theme of his childhood, he sings “But have you heard the story of my mother’s fate? / She left us in Detroit in the rain with a pillow case / Fortune for the paper weight.“. Listen to this touching song here.
