Sufjan Stevens released his acclaimed album Carrie & Lowell in 2015 and earlier this year he released a corresponding live album and concert film, Carrie & Lowell Live. On November 24 Stevens is releasing a Carrie & Lowell mixtape entitled The Greatest Gift, via Asthmatic Kitty. It includes unreleased outtakes, remixes, and iPhone demos from the album and will be released on cassette, LP, and digital formats. Now he has shared a song from it, “Wallowa Lake Monster.” The haunting and simply chill-inducing track is nearly 7-minutes long and ends with a beautiful choir section. Listen below, followed by the mixtape’s tracklist again.

A portion of the proceeds from The Greatest Gift will be donated to Cancer Community Support, which a press release says “is dedicated to ensuring that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.”

Stevens also recently teamed up with Nico Muhly, Bryce Dessner (of The National), and James McAlister for a new collaborative album about space, Planetarium, which came out back in June via 4AD.

Stevens also has two new songs in Call Me By Your Name, a new gay romance film directed by Luca Guadagnino that stars Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet and is also due out November 24.
