Illinois 2 LP (Color)
A very special 10th anniversary edition of Sufjan Stevens’ Illinois.
In 2005 Sufjan Stevens released Illinois, his fourth album and the second in his 50-state project. Sufjan fans with long memories might recall a minor hiccup in our release of Illinois as it related to the inclusion of a certain Metropolis-born man of steel.
Ten years after the release of the double LP of Illinois, a special 10th anniversary edition of the LP that includes Chicago-born Blue Marvel on the cover.
The double LP will include an “Antimatter Blue” and “Cape White” vinyl colors. The audio for the special edition comes from a 2014 remastered version of Illinois. Children’s book artist and the original Illinois cover artist Divya Srinivasan was commissioned to portray Blue Marvel in the style of the original art. Pressing is limited to 10,000 double LPs of this edition. Also included is a red, star-shaped 12" featuring a demo of "Chicago".
