Sufjan Stevens shared two new versions of "Fourth of July"

Asthmatic Kitty Records

Sufjan Stevens shared two previously unreleased versions of his 2015 Carrie & Lowell song "Fourth of July." Both versions, recorded around 2014, were released today (July 1) on Stevens' 47th birthday. A special limited edition red 7" is set to be released in December in time for the 10-year anniversary of his mother Carrie's death.

The April Base version of "Fourth of July" was recorded in Justin Vernon’s April Base studio near Eau Claire, Wisconsin; the "Dumbo" version was recorded at Steven's old Brooklyn apartment.

Listen to both new versions of Sufjan Stevens' "Fourth of July" below.
