Sufjan Stevens’ Illinois is getting a special 10th Anniversary Reissue via Asthmatic Kitty Records.
Sufjan Stevens fans, rejoice! Illinois is getting a special reissue for its 10th Anniversary (we can’t believe its been 10 years, either). Asthmatic Kitty will release a special “Blue Marvel 10th Anniversary Edition” of Illinois on April 1st.
In 2005 Sufjan Stevens released Illinois, his fourth album and the second in his 50-state project. Sufjan fans with long memories might recall a minor hiccup in our release of Illinois as it related to the inclusion of a certain Metropolis-born man of steel.
While we do love balloons, we’ve always missed the imminent presence Big Blue brought to the album’s cover art, short-lived though it was. But things are very different in 2015 than they were in 2005, and different times call for different heroes.
So today, exactly ten years after we released the double LP of Illinois, we’re proud to announce a special 10th anniversary edition of the LP that includes Chicago-born Blue Marvel on the cover. -Asthmatic Kitty
The “Blue Marvel” 10th Anniversary Reissue of Illinois will be pressed on 2xLP. The double LP will include an “Antimatter Blue” and “Cape White” vinyl colors, and is limited to 10,000 copies. Pre-orders for the album will open up on Tuesday, November 24th at 1pm EST.
