Watch Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly and Bryce Dessner's "Venus"

In Cincinnati, Ohio, on the last evening of the MusicNOW Festival, Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly and Bryce Desnner of The National performed track “Venus.”

The collaborative piece, which was co-written by the trio, is a song cycle based on the solar system. The composition is accompanied by a string quartet and seven trombones.

In addition to this collaborative effort, we recently reported Stevens’ Record Store Day release with Rosie Thomas and his new project with Son Lux and Serengeti.
