Limited time album download included

Asthmatic Kitty Records presents Carrie & Lowell Live, an audio and visual document of Sufjan's November 9, 2015 performance at North Charleston Performing Arts Center in South Carolina. The translucent blue 12" release includes "Blue Bucket of Gold" on one side, a cover of Drake's "Hotline Bling" featuring Gallant on Side B, and a digital download to the full 16-track set.

The show, which was designed by Marc Janowitz, incorporated an expansive lighting display and cathedral-like LED columns featuring home videos shot by Sufjan's maternal grandfather, Nick Marabeas. Much of this vintage footage highlights family birthdays, graduations, and weddings of Carrie and her siblings from the late 1940s through the early 1970s, lending the performances the emotional arc of a memorial, celebrating Carrie's life and meditating on her death with a sweeping transcendence that gave testament to Sufjan's central thesis of mourning: that in spite of death, we must go on living in fullness and joy.
