Is the album title The Ascension a reference to mountaineering or the Christian festival which celebrates Jesus’s ascension to heaven on the 40th day of Easter? Judging from the album cover which looks like a stain-glass window, you’d probably go for the latter. Though the first option seems equally valid; Sufjan Stevens’ eighth album takes you on an expedition. Be careful, it’s a long journey (15 tracks in 80 minutes) but the summits are worth it. On his moving previous album Carrie & Lowell (2015) the American musician chronicled the story of his sick mother on an acoustic guitar. Here, it’s a sick world he’s talking about: America in 2020, disillusionment, anxiety and dehumanisation. And desperate times call for desperate measures! The measures that Sufjan Stevens took are paradoxical: he made this album alone but orchestrated his songs like liturgical music. The main theme running through the album is his intimate voice. He sounds like a fallen angel, multiplying his voice into a choir of 150 Sufjan Stevens in white togas, layered over an electronic backdrop that goes from retro Vangelis-style ambient music to R’n’B, while exploring sounds that remind us of what Björk did in the 90s. The Ascension is a heavenly album of contemporary pop that’s been liberated by boundless technology. It’s not easy to take everything in at first, but after listening to this record a few times it might become difficult to stop. © Stéphane Deschamps/Qobuz

After Music for Insomnia in 2008, a collection of instrumentals on the theme of sleep disorders, Sufjan Stevens has produced another collaboration with his stepfather. Lowell Brahms, the husband of his late mother, about whom he spoke in the introspective Carrie & Lowell in 2015, is one of the people who have counted in the career of the Michigan songwriter. Together, they started Asthmatic Kitty Records in 1999, through which Stevens released many of his works, and most importantly, they play together whenever they meet. From these regular jam sessions stretching back over the past ten years, Stevens has meticulously extracted the "10% magic moments" before setting to work on this musical patchwork with his team. The result: a psychic journey between ethereal guitars and cosmic synths, on the borders of ambient and New Age, invoking at once Vangelis, Mike Oldfield, John Carpenter and Boards of Canada – and even a bit of the spirit of Neil Young’s Dead Man soundtrack. One to listen to in a yurt during your next shamanic retreat. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz
