Exploding reel: Sufjan Stevens has soundtracked a new film

Sufjan Stevens has soundtracked a new film

‘Call Me By Your Name’ will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this month.

It’s been revealed that Sufjan Stevens has soundtracked a new film from director Luca Guadagino.

Based on the novel of the same name by Andre Aciman, ‘Call Me By Your Name’ is a love story set in Northern Italy that follows the relationship between a 17-year-old and a summer guest at his parents’ cliff-side mansion. It stars Armie Hammer, Timothee Chalamet and Michael Stuhlbarg, and is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on 22nd January. 

Knowing Suffy, you could expect the soundtrack to be filled with heartfelt acoustic guitar, mandolin and quiet but heartfelt waves of emotion. Or he could just go completely left-field like on ‘The Age of Adz’.

The soundtrack is Suffy’s first new material to emerge since 2015’s spellbinding, tear-jerking 2015 album ‘Carrie & Lowell’ and the stand-alone single ‘Exploding Whale’ the same year.
