Mozart, Bach, Wagner... Stevens!?!

I, like most living, breathing folks have been waiting a follow up to Sufjan Stevens' 2005 master piece Illinois, and a couple of months ago rumour had it that the next state would be Oregon and an album titled Oregon, With the Wind. Turns out, that was a hoax.

Stevens' next venture, a foray into classical music, "a seven movement orchestral suite" about the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. Mozart eat your heart out.
