The Ascension is the eighth studio album by American indie folk musician Sufjan Stevens, released in September 2020 via Asthmatic Kitty.

The Ascension is the long-awaited follow up to Sufjan’s 2015 album Carrie And Lowell.

The Ascension is a salient collection of fifteen pop songs that, with sweeping editorial aplomb, interrogate the integrity and sustainability of our human existence.

The album seeks to confront the psychic trauma of our current apocalyptic condition by highlighting the disparity between survival and despair, while trying to maintain a path towards truth and light.

Sufjan recorded almost everything on The Ascension himself on his computer using a drum machine and a handful of synthesizers, his goal clear from the start: Keep it simple. Keep it real. Keep it moving.

Three singles have been released from the album: “America”, “Video Game” and “Sugar”.

This double album 2LP record set is a first run edition on clear coloured vinyl housed in a tip on gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves, 16 page booklet and download code, pressed in the US via Asthmatic Kitty.
