Planetarium, the new collaborative album co-composed by Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner, Nico Muhly and James McAlister, will be released on 9th June. Watch the video to ‘Saturn’, the first single taken from the album, below.
A completely reimagined version of the project originally undertaken years ago and performed in various iterations around the world, Planetarium unites Stevens’ vocals, McAlister’s beats, Dessner’s guitar performance, and Muhly’s instrumental compositions.
Planetarium revolves around the cosmic ideas Stevens’ lyrics explore: mythology, astrology, science, astronomy and the intricacies of human consciousness.
The album began when Dutch concert hall Muziekgebouw Eindhoven commissioned Muhly to create a new piece and he enlisted friends Dessner, Stevens and McAlister.
