Sufjan Stevens Shares New Song ‘My Rajneesh’

Following the release of the 12-minute single ‘America’ a week ago, Sufjan Stevens has now put out the B-side of the single called ‘My Rajneesh’, which clocks in at just over 10 minutes. While as sprawling and socially conscious as ‘America’, the new song is melodically more reminiscent of Stevens’ earlier work, before it becomes infused with electronics and then devolves into an ambient piece by the end. Listen to it below.

A 12″ vinyl with the two tracks is set for release on July 31. The cover art for the new song, which won’t be included in Stevens’ upcoming album, is a portrait of Rajneesh, also known as Osho, founder of the Rajneesh movement, drawn by Stephen Halker. The single artwork also includes a painting of a dog by Earl Swanigan and an eagle/snake plus other tattoo art by Michael Evangelista.

Sufjan Stevens’ upcoming album, titled The Ascension, is set for release on September 25 via Asthmatic Kitty Records. Back in March, the singer-songwriter released a collaborative record with his stepfather, Lowell Brams, called Aporia.
