Watch: "I'll Be Home For Christmas" by Sufjan Stevens [VIDEO]

Stevens puts his spin on the classic holiday tune.

In this article…

Holiday music season is already upon us.  Christmas songs are sneaking into radio play rotations and Pandora song algorithms.  It always feels like this cycle begins earlier and earlier every year with Christmas infringing on Thanksgiving more and more.  Slowly, but inevitably, Christmas will overpower all of the holidays.  Entire years will be devoted to Christmas shopping.  Carolers will be out in force during the dog days of summer.  And we will have Christmas music playing all year long.

If the songs were more like Sufjan Stevens' rendition of "I'll Be Home For Christmas" off his upcoming Silver & Gold Christmas collection, I wouldn't be entirely opposed to that concept.  Stevens has recorded a Christmas EP every year since 2001.  In 2006 he released Songs for Christmas, a 42-song collection of covers and new songs.  Silver & Gold contains a whopping 58 songs, including this beautiful version of the Bing Crosby classic.  I would call his version tasteful, while the music video that accompanies is best described as horrifyingly creepy.
