Sufjan Stevens has shared two new songs, "Love Yourself" and "With My Whole Heart," in honor of LGBTQ Pride Month. He has also shared a 1996 demo of "Love Yourself" as well as a reprise of the song. Listen to all of it below.

Both songs are available digitally now, with a 7-inch release due on June 28 via Asthmatic Kitty. "Love Yourself" was written in 1996 and "With My Whole Heart" is a brand new song. In a press release Stevens said that "With My Whole Heart" stemmed from a challenge he set himself to "write an upbeat and sincere love song without conflict, anxiety, or self-deprecation." 

Some of the proceeds from the songs will be donated to two organizations that provide support for LGBTQ and homeless kids in America, which are the Ali Forney Center in Harlem, NY and the Ruth Ellis Center in Detroit, MI. Stevens has also designed a Pride T-shirt and bumper sticker that are exclusively available from www.sufjamz.com, Stevens' new merchandising platform.
