Sufjan Stevens Sings 'Songs for Christmas'

Published: 2006-09-07
There's a chill in the air, the kids are heading back to school and another sure sign winter is on its way: holiday albums are beginning to pop up.

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sufjan Stevens is coming out with a holiday homage on November 21. Collected from Christmas EP's he's recorded since 2001, the Songs for Christmas box set includes a whole slew of Stevens' Christmas favourites.

According to Billboard, the tunes won't be the only gift the box set brings. "Each release contains several holiday originals by the quirky songwriter. The package is enriched with Christmas stickers, liner notes and short stories by Stevens, a Christmas essay by author Rick Moody, a songbook with lyric sheets and chord charts and an animated music video by Tom Eaton."

The five disc set contains Christmas classics like "Joy to the World," "Jingle Bells," "Silent Night" and "Amazing Grace."
