Sufjan Stevens and Lowell Brams have released the video for their new song ‘The Runaround’.
Stevens and Asthmatic Kitty Records co-founder, longtime collaborator and Stevens’ stepfather Brams recently announced that they will release a collaborative album, Aporia, on March 27 and shared lead single ‘The Unlimited’.
Today they have followed up with the video for ‘The Runaround’. The collaborative project signals a pivotal moment in Stevens and Brams’ relationship, which began in the early 1980s when Brams married Stevens’ late mother Carrie. Stevens and Brams maintained a strong relationship throughout Stevens’ adolescence and into adulthood, eventually founding Asthmatic Kitty Records together in 1999.
“You know how it is with jamming: ninety per cent of it is absolutely horrible, but if you’re just lucky enough, ten per cent is magic. I just kept pulling out these little magical moments,” Stevens says of the material.
The video, shot and edited by ABUTTA492, features Bike Life bikers on the streets of Harlem and NYC, Atlanta, and Miami. See the clip, below.
