Sufjan Stevens Teams Up With The National On New LP

After reaching number one in Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart, Sufjan Stevens has recorded many different efforts, but nothing considered as a follow up for his 2005's Illinois. The Detroit born indie folk pioneer has even gone as far as saying, "I no longer really have faith in the album anymore. I no longer have faith in the long."

Friend of Sufjan, Bryce Dessner of the Nationals, is now saying that Stevens is recording this elusive follow up right now at the National's Brooklyn studio. Dessner also stated that the National has played on a few tracks and that Stevens' new material will "probably blow people's minds."

Although no date has been given for the release of this record, be sure to keep an eye out for this Sufjan/National collaboration.
