The All Delighted People EP includes two versions of “All Delighted People,” which debuted on Sufjan’s 2009 tour, and references lyrics from Paul Simon’s “The Sound of Silence.” Along with six other new songs, the collection is his first original song-oriented material since 2006, among them the first recording of live-show mainstay “The Owl and the Tanager,” and the elegiac “Djohariah,” featuring Sufjan’s first recorded epic guitar solo. Along with the guitars, piano, and banjo that characterize his previous recordings, choirs, strings and brass adorn the melodies. Raise Your Hands!
