Sufjan Stevens: Alphabet St. (Prince Cover)

Sufjan Stevens Alphabet StreetAnother surprise cover just arrived from Sufjan Stevens, following this week’s election day take on the national anthem and a few traditional holiday tunes with a trip back to 1988: Prince’s “Alphabet St.” Above, hear the Lovesexy single Sufjanized with plenty of reverence to the Purple One’s original. The track will appear on the 8th EP off Stevens’ forthcoming holiday box set, Silver & Gold. This week also brought nostalgic home-video visuals for the new set’s “Justice Delivers Its Death.” With this new cover now revealed, however, here’s hoping an ’88 throwback to Prince’s wonderfully dated original video is on the way. Revisit that vintage clip below:
