Janet inspired Sufjan Stevens' forthcoming Pop album

Recommended Posts

Quote

The album is at heart a pop record, Sufjan’s first. And when it came to writing these songs, Sufjan’s goal was simple: keep it moving. Eighties and early nineties jams informed Sufjan’s songwriting on this record, with Janet Jackson’s brilliant Rhythm Nation, produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, as guiding light - both for the pop framework and the underlying political themes. The beats on The Ascension sound a lot like those great eighties beats: honed, skillful, yes, but also big and loud and thick and, well, just straight up fun. The hooks are obvious and catchy and like any good pop song, last way past when you’re done listening to the song. Sufjan’s vocals on The Ascension are soft, beautiful, natural, real, true.

It's not the first time king shows love to queen. I remember him stanning God Til It's Gone down on his blog (@AvrilLaQueen) and him saying how she inspired the Age of Adz tour.

 

The way Janet influences even the most acclaimed indie legends. Her impact truly knows no bounds

Will be interesting. Don't think he will be able to top his magnum opus Carrie & Lowell though but it's going to be incomparable since it will be a pop album. :cm:

I’m happy for her, she did paved the way for Britney, Jlo and Rihanna as they did for a younger generation.

 

I wish she were more active at releasing music.
