He’s got another Christmas tunes boxset coming out. This one is called Silver & Gold Volumes 6 – 10, featuring songs recorded between 2006 and 2010. Aaron and Bryce Dessner (The National), Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire), DM Stith, Cat Martino (Sufjan’s right-hand woman on all things Age of Adz), Sebastian Krueger (Inlets), Gabriel Kahane, Vesper Stamper, and members of Danielson (Daniel, Elin, Lilly, and Ida) all feature.

The CD boxset out November 9th will include five EPs, Christmas stickers, temporary tattoos, a paper ornament, an “apocalyptic” poster, lyrics and chord charts, “hallucinogenic photographs and psychedelic graphic design”, and an essay by Stevens on the Christmas tree. The vinyl boxset, which doesn’t have a release date yet apart from the information that it will either be available later this year or in 2013 will include the five EPs across six records, the stickers, tattoos photographs and ornament, a 40-page Christmas colouring songbook and a Christmas colouring book.
