Sufjan's Dark Was the Night Track

Adam already posted the track listing for the Dark Was the Night CD due out February 17 in North America. One of the names that I was most intrigued to see on the list was Sufjan Stevens whose hiatus has left me wondering how he will ever complete his 50 states catalog. Sufjan performs "You are the Blood" by the Castanets, which is a gothic tale about blood flowing through fingers etc. Sufjan puts an electro backing to the song, but lots of big sounds, seemingly meaningless piano notes and electric beats keeps the song in a gothic style. The Sufjan melody is definitely missing. This is not the Sufjan that you are used to listening to, but it is an interesting deviation none the less. We also have access to two other tracks off of the album courtesy of Red Hot Compilations.
