Earlier this year Sufjan Stevens announced that he would be releasing a new album with his step-father Lowell Brams, set for a March 27 release. Ahead of the release, Stevens is giving fans an early listen to the album with a Livestream/listening party on his YouTube channel, complete with live chat. The Livestream is set to begin at 12 PM PT / 3 PM EST. You can listen in at the embed at the bottom of this article.

You might recognize Brams' name for Sufjan's excellent 2015 LP Carrie & Lowell. Brams also helps manages and co-founded Stevens' Asthmatic Kitty Records. Don't expect what you might hear from a typical Stevens solo album – this record has been described as taking inspiration from Blade Runner and Hereditary soundtracks, embracing "new age" sounds. Experience it for yourself below.
