On the eve of the release of his second Christmas collection, Sufjan Steven has released two huge treats for fans: First of all, we get a full stream of the album, along with a video for “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” a semi-startling holiday clip that features coffins, fake snow and what appears to be an elf who’s ODed—much in the same holidays-gone-wrong spirit as Stevens’ video for “Mr. Frosty Man.” You can check out the clip below, which at least ends on a happy note.
Stevens’ five-EP Christmas album, Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas, Vols. 6-10, is available today through Asthmatic Kitty. Check out the album stream and the clip for “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” below.
