Song of the Day: ‘To Be Alone With You (Sufjan Stevens Cover)’ by Joshua James

On 25 June, 2011 by slowcoustic

Song of the day.  Joshua James covering Sufjan’s classic ‘To Be Alone With You’ for the charity album featuring the Seven Swans album ‘reimagined’ by a different artist for each song.  Great idea, not all tracks really worked, but overall it is a pretty solid listen.  So, then, song of the day:

    A classic album without a doubt. “Size Too Small” and “The Dress Looks Nice On You” were the standouts on the original “Seven Swans” album. If you haven’t heard the live recording of Sufjan explaining the lyrical origins of those two songs, it’s a real treat.

    Joshua James does this song justice here I think.

    I wish Sufjan would release another album like “Seven Swans.” Hiss more complicated music isn’t bad, but it doesn’t compare to his acoustic stuff.
