Product Description

llinois, a 22-track anthematic tone poem to The Prairie State. Following the 2003 collection of songs for his home state, “Michigan,” Stevens presents an emphatic answer to the question: Can a songwriter express the spirit of a state he’s never called home? With his most enterprising project to date – the result of extensive research, travel, meditation, and countless days and nights in the studio – admirers of his previous work and first time listeners will agree that the answer is yes. On this second state tour, Sufjan weaves variegated musical styles (jazz, funk, pop) and instrumental textures (from oboe to church organ) into a tapestry of persons famous, infamous, and anonymous, and places iconic, obscure, and ghostly.The musical road trip takes you through ghost towns, grain mills, hospital rooms, and the City of Broad Shoulders, with guest appearances by a poet, a president, and a serial murderer, to name a few.
