Sufjan Stevens – Justice Delivers Its Gift

“Justice Delivers Its Gift”, from Sujfan Steven’s upcoming Christmas album Silver & Gold (out Nov. 13) is beautiful and haunting. It sounds similar to songs off his All Delighted People EP. Though this song isn’t like the other cheerful Christmas songs we usually hear it is a fitting and meaningful song for the season. It’s good to be joyful but it’s also good to be contemplative. We need both. Sufjan calls us in this song to reconsider what we value here on earth.
