Sufjan Stevens has announced a new audiovisual live album, Carrie & Lowell Live, due out April 28 on Asthmatic Kitty. It was recorded on November 9, 2015 at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center in South Carolina, on Sufjan’s tour in support of his last album, Carrie & Lowell. As Asthmatic Kitty points out, today, March 31, is the birthday of the titular Lowell Brams, who is Sufjan’s stepfather and co-founder of the label. It is also the two-year anniversary of the album's release. The album will be released in both audio and video forms, with the video available on YouTube and Vimeo.
